chicken corpse



Settle down now, it is only your stomach,

being terribly aggravated, acting up again

from that gluttonous feast you just had,

a chicken corpse entire, its fetid flesh torn

by the same fork your mother once used.

Oh, I wonder what she might think of you.


You sit there angered drooling and gnaw
the bones like a godless, growling hound.
The pride you feel for yourself is merely
because the master whose carpet you shit
upon allows you to live out your soured,
insignificant lifespan— a flash in the pan!
