IRONY

Is it me --
listening, this morning,
to an audiobook of Walden
on my commute to work --
or you --
shirtless pickup truck driver,
undoubtedly listening to
the latest country standard
while picking your teeth
with your pinky finger --

who will notice
the small, gray rabbit
carefully treading
across the railroad track,
with his nose to the wind
and only a rumbling beneath him?
