Duckling Ways

Duckling Ways

You chopped off my wings
to stop my rise in the scheme
of things forgetting
that my mandibles
have dexterity all their
own considerring I
eat flies and like that.

It's bad on you to hiccup
in your flabby thought
of me - me peeping
along preflight all downy
and suited to friends
of a feather or
of a fat duckling waddle.

When I grow them back
you will see me get
all true and right as I fly.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
