Totally Awesome Picture of the Week 40


Rooster – (n) a male domestic fowl; a cock – why so angry?

Oh, rooster/domestic fowl/cock (whathaveyou), your tears are indecipherable. Like poetry, your wattle – (n) a colored fleshy lobe hanging from the head or neck of domestic chickens – drapes elegantly, a crimson reminder of wounds unhealed. Your beak – (n) a bird’s horny projecting jaws – so smooth and shiny as to reflect the essence of your pain. I bear witness, the rough silhouette is mine. Your feathers – (n) any of the flat appendages growing from a bird’s skin and forming its plumage, consisting of a partly hollow horny shaft fringed with vanes of barbs – remain unruffled but your eyes scream a mood less mellow.

Perhaps it is the hatchet in my hand.
