"Rabbit" is a song dedicated to my goddaughter, Freya Rabbit Sanko. It is inspired by Rabbit (pictured), the late pet of Freya's parents, Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff, and draws lyrics from the Wallace Stevens poem, "A Rabbit as King of the Ghosts."
After Rabbit passed away in 2004, her body was sent to North Carolina to the teenage taxidermist, Amy Ritchie. She returned to New York beautifully preserved with one peculiar detail. On one side of her face she bears a neutral expression, and on the other a beguiling smile.
