Mermaid Rabbit

Once upon a time,
there was a rabbit
who wanted to become a mermaid,
who longed to change
into a woman,
a woman
who passionately, ravenously
desired to become as bodiless
as a shaft of light
descending
through bottle-green water.
Light: like the wind running its hands
through the grass,
sifting out the rabbits.
Light: like the pale, swaying torsos
of drowned girls,
singing.
