wakes me each morning
with his chicken talk.
His crow is loud
and very deep
when all I want
is to sleep
This rooster is going to be named soon. He comes around at 5 each morning to say hello. Either he's getting named, or I'm finding a chicken pot.
Then I can curse him by name, which is much more satisfying.
There is a Kauai joke. How do you cook a Kauai chicken? You put it and a lava rock in a pot with water. Cook it until the lava melts, skim out the rock and cook the chicken for two more hours, then the chicken might be tender enough to eat. Kauai chickens are tough old birds.
Do you know a chicken joke?
When I was in China, we went to a restaurant in Peking, I think it was called Peking Duck. We had a seven course meal that featured duck in every course. So I've been thinking about Kauai chicken as a seven course meal with cold chicken consume, shredded chicken tacos with cabbage and pineapple, devilled eggs, roast chicken, barbecue chicken and sweet and sour chicken. What is your favorite way to eat chicken? Maybe you can try writing a list poem today about eating chicken. Have fun writing.
