Beggars Can’t Be Choosers
Those casual words, said as if rehearsed, spat so naturally. I looked up and watched your jowls quiver. As you belittled me you didn’t realize I was taking note of your face, the cut of your suit, the watch on your wrist, the click of your heels, your scent.
Later, your address.
You could have just dropped your coins into my cup, but no, you seasoned with insult. So now, as I pull up this string secured to your meaty hand and scoop up some beautiful blue-claws for dinner I chuckle as I think, ‘Does it taste just like chicken?’
