A man we tabbed
Bunny Foo Foo
goes about
bopping city rats
upon the head
then loads
the limp bodies
into a garden size
trash bag
and lugs it around
he goes.

There is a place
below the streets
where he lays
the bodies out
in long neat ranks
and files.
He sprinkles them
with mushroom spores
in an effort to recreate
the fugal forests
from Journey
to the Center
of the Earth.
