White Rabbit

Once upon a time a dozen Chinese grannies tried to marry me off, and stuffed me full of delicious Chinese candies called white rabbits, and I wrote a poem about it starring the rabbit in the moon, and Silk Road Review–one of my favorite venues for poetry of place–published it in issue 6.2 of their amazing literary journal.
