The End Is Over

I buried the second baby gerbil next to his brother. His sex was speculative because he’d been chewed to mid- abdomen. Again the parents seemed unaffected.

When I was in fifth grade, I had two gerbils escape and invade a young hamster cage.

I found one of them with its innards torn out. The other was stashed with the hamster ‘ s food cache.

That day I learned life can be sad and constantly comes up with new ways to hurt you in unexpected directions.

Stupid, stupid gerbils.
