In a sandbox, a rabbit --
front paws on a plate
containing bits of a carrot --
rises from his hind legs.
Long ears swing
while eyes canvass the area.

I crouch low
hands between legs
one fist punching an open palm.
"C'mon, baby," I mutter. "Come to me."

A soft voice sings, "Hop-py!"
as a hand from behind reaches
for him. The hand clasps,
trapping air.

The white rabbit darts toward me
I watch his red eyes as I crush
grass in front of me.

I squeeze him with two hands.
He bites
and struggles
and escapes
under my legs.

I no longer play
on the infield.
