The world is full of bunnies.
Some of them just happen to be knitted.
It’s also full of roses and other flowers,
but don’t make the mistake
of thinking that makes me happy.
I’m allowed to be irascible.
In fact, I have 63 reasons for that,
and most of them come into my library every day.
My students scribble endless tripe
so I tell them to stop tinkering at the edges
and write something from the heart.
The world is full of bunnies,
but real happiness
is a world of perfect prose.
