Wish Bone

fowl soothsayer
predicting grains of future
we tear flesh
from your carcass

pick at morsels
caught between our teeth
and wish upon the snap
of your hollow bones


  1. the future does not look bright for chickens
    just saying...ha. my future was predicted once,
    has not happened yet...smiles.

  2. Ouch! I have already been agonizing over the horrible life of chickens in factory "farms" (pardon the oxymoron) This cuts to the quick!!

  3. How often death (someone else's) is required to bring luck and fortune.. wander if it's the early worm that bring luck to the fowl?
