Snelling Avenue Bunny

6:00 AM, late February. Pre-dawn. Waiting for bus. Silhouetted bunny down the block, crossing almost deserted Snelling. Even though obviously sprinting all-out, seemed to be taking forever. Northbound car and eastbound bunny; destiny, converging. Brakes lock. Bunny pivots. But just a fake. Returns to easterly heading. Disaster, narrowly averted.
