Short Piece About a Hawk

There's this hawk that's been terrorizing the rabbits in our neighborhood all summer and fall and now. It eats everything but the head of the rabbit, which it just drops wherever the hell it wants. You can walk down my street at any given moment and find a dead rabbit's head just lying there in the middle of the sidewalk, or poking comically out of a snowbank as though it’s watching you.

Anyway, my neighbor, Carol, was saying that she usually find three or four of these heads in her yard almost every morning. She used to have trouble with students taking the parking spot in front of her house, but now that she has dead rabbit heads all over her yard, they're scared to park there. So something good's coming out of it.
