The mower stalled, twice; kneeling, I found
A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,
Killed. It had been in the long grass.

I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.
Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world
Unmendably. Burial was no help:

Next morning I got up and it did not.
The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.

The fine folks at the Dallas Comic Con asked me to do an illustration of The Iron Giant for their Fan Appreciation Day last week. Tim McCanlies, screenwriter of The Iron Giant and creator of Smallville, was at the show signing the prints and being a super nice guy.
