Rage Stuffed Managerie

Ghost Nature

Humans like all mammals
are profoundly wired
to feel empathy for baby faces
including those of other species
including the simulacra of toys
a baby step into the uncanny

Ghost nature can be comforting
in a deeply ersatz way

 Sometimes my images
are upsetting

Please- don't club
the baby seals

Sometimes there's
a dragon in the ointment

Sometimes cuteness can be
kind of gruesome

I recall ever owning
only one plush toy in all my days
It was a tiger and my older
brothers ridiculed  my affection for it
until I released it to go
the way of all things
