My Easter Bunny Heart

My Easter bunny heart
is decorated with care
but like a cavern
hollow
bite my ear
swallow
there’s a chamber bare
nothing survives there.

Keep the wrinkly wrapper
sealed
illusion of the deep
concealed
my heart’s no man’s feast
just not fit to eat.

      Thank you, Ingrid. I don’t know where it came from, other than the disappointment I often felt in discovering my Easter bunny was hollow and considering how the heart can become hardened. Sure it was for the best, those barren bunnies, considering the chocolate overload of the day.
