chicken ranch

i planted another chicken today.  perhaps
a chicken-tree will grow.

eggfruit will form, and soon chickens
will drop

to the ground
in a consternation of feathers.


  1. Seems feasible to me. I imagine one would need only to put one's ear to the ground, keep an open nasal cavity, and breathe circularly in order to get a sense of a chicken-tree coming up. Very cool Koan-poem.

    1. i done all that.

      i'm still waiting for the tree.

      but then, waiting is the sweetest part...

      ...if you don't count the consternation.

  2. I love this, Bruce. A kind I'd want to paint instead than write. But here, it's clear. Sharing a deep insight without excess.
