To the fifteen mice

to the fifteen dead mice who
slipped silently through the
small gap behind the Kashi
cereal into the cabinet smelling
fresh peanut butter so innocently
wandering into the warmth
of this house where so many
mice have lived so comfortably
over many generations only
to find the final darkness

note to readers:  I hope as much as you that I have 
terminated (!?) all the mice for awhile.  This is an
annual fall event in this house.
