Coc Au Vin

coq-au-vin

an afternoon of slaughter
made worse by carnage
to a neighbourly association

rural living is indecently more
than menopausic concerns
disguised as urban curiosity

either you learn to mind
your own business when
the cockerels are killed

or there is no prospect
of shared benevolence –
no invite for coc au vin
