Poetry #164
(published January 29, 2004)
Chicken Poem
by Jonathan Hayes

embarcadero center
waiting on union street bus
she told me
"last week i boarded the bus and a couple blocks up
an old chinese lady came on with a chicken
pecking and heckling
the bus driver told her
"no animals on the bus"
she snapped the neck of the chicken
and walked to the back of the bus"
