In a year my heart broke open like  an egg

While he played in the chicken coop.

Bored with chicks who pecked and blindly followed his cock call.

He now craves my yolk,

Which slipped past the talons.

Far from the barn door.

Reabsorbed back into the earth,

Where a wildflower sprouts.

**Original verse by (copyrighted) by Susan Kirschbaum
