POST 142: Chickens, Dogs, Maine Island, South Carolina Island, Portland Public Library, April

by Carol Bass

THE CHICKENS ARE LOOSE

The whole island is frantic
terrorized by
marauding neighborhood dogs
People are screaming
3 dead hens already
Valerie running down
a skinny red dog,
chops full of black chicken

Help!

Don’t dare go out
Stay behind the curtains
for today’s minor horror
