fur hat – A Poem by Julie Hogg

animal fur - Julie

warm head
fresh red
tears, funny
hairstyle
Captain said
sick joke
me? I haven’t
spoken
since my
pen ran
out and
my hands
are numb
since I
gnawed at
them when
somebody shot
the sun
on one of
those days
that blends
into one
months ago,
suffocated
in snow.

Me?
Do You
Remember Me?

maybe we’ve
won already
Captain said
kill
a hare for
your head
fur hat
he laughed
he’s never
done that
before, me?
I’m frightened
to use
my mind
anymore.
