Living Right





The Rooster


the rooster died this morning


cut off mid-crow

glossy feathers, bright eyes

cocky barnyard strut

gone


with a quick twist of the wrist


the rooster died this morning


he was all wrong


wrong gender

wrong time

wrong place


to his credit though

he lived like he was right

up to the very end
