chicken little

dinner flew too

fast & I couldn’t sleep

I couldn’t control the character

an egg for breakfast was

an oval ( )

from a chicken

I found her in a tree

her outward energy

with her awkward feathers

without meeting her angels

she lives her truths

& levitates

within her small brain

she swallows the hour

made out of china

the oval is perfectly in tune
