at the Jastrow, eating rabbit with you, it's like
well, like eating duck with you:
the more I use a metaphor, the more
like a person I love eating an animal
a person eats an animal.
       we're talking too loud at the drive-in, I'm doing
nothing but loving you so much that               
I'm locked into this rental Mirage.
two figures embrace on screen.
and then again, for real.




This poem was inspired from Jastrow's image of the duck/rabbit that changes form depending on what you look for. I wanted to see if the same could be done with a poem, with two stanzas you could read vertically or horizontally at will.
