Shifting in time | Hakudoshi

shifting in time.
the bluebird is a carnivore. the rabbit a wolf.
thereareplaceswherecopsarestillpeople,
but then, people have a history of trampling a man to buy a television set—
and burning “witches” at the stake.
so, if the bluebird is a carnivore, don’t be shocked when his song
is cheerful, his wings in order, and his mind washed with hate.

    who said he came to set the world on fire?
    suffer not a witch.
    our old lessons learned so harshly,
    forgotten so easily
    borne from the death of so many beloved swordbearers,
    defenders of remembrance, like embers
    a flame in an endless winter, set by fathers.
