Long thin tail, dark corner
Lift the cardboard
Small rat, not moving
Frown at swarming flies and accompanying smell
Death reigns, dried blood
Plastic shopping bag glove
Grip on the rat
Slough of skin, plop of muscle nut-brown
Tawny rat puppet
Poem 4: Focuses on repeating a single color throughout the poem. Personal thoughts – everyone else wrote about beauty, flowers, longing, etc. I wrote about a personal experience.
