On our evening walks, we watch
rabbits. They never stop sniffing.
I google rabbit. Fifty million scent
cells. We have a meager six million.
We call to them. They come to our
voice. We toss them bite size
shredded wheat, one by one, but
mostly they don’t see. They smell.
A good sniff of each other is
like a chat. When rabbits shift
their noses up and down it is
called “nose blinking.”
Watching those tiny nose
muscles twitch makes my nose
itch. Makes my itch noisy.
Makes me want to nose blink.
