Tuesday

The crucial part is

when the wing is shot off the bird

 

and the cop drops his handcuffs

on the sidewalk

 

says he is looking for his son

in the mock orange hedges

 

only to find a man that looks

like his father

 

fifty, overweight, three puncture

wounds to the chest:

 

it looks like a snake got here first

feathers, residue.
