The animals presented themselves to us in twos. Each pair said they represented their species and could not live under the present conditions. They were planning to migrate. That sounds like a fantastic adventure, we said, can we go with you? They gave us withering looks, as if saying we were what was intolerable. But we love you, we said. The animals turned their backs to us. Even the dogs. It was the saddest time when the animals went away. Eventually we recovered our spirits. We said to the plants: Let us take care of you. Let us love you.

Ooof. Another good one - three cheers for the prose poem that kicks the reader in the stomach.
