Hungry Dog

The argument breaks over the table
in waves pounding
the Rock Cornish game hens
to death
they were dry
preoccupied she
missed the timer
while the potatoes boiled over
on the burner
all before dinner
and now the gale blows
with warning flags posted
while the dog moans
for tidbits
at her feet.

    This reminds me of the holidays. It also seems to be a commentary on women and all they go through in order to make happy homes.

    Really like the consistency of word choices here and the energy you create with it. No wasted emotional descriptions rather your storm analogy creates the force for us.

    I wonder if you need ‘overcooked.’ Well done.
