The Chicken Strut of Dependency

The Chicken Strut of Dependency

Signals the munching of time.
Physical dependence seems burdensome
But blind families never know how to
Stop drinking: the love trap’s soothing.

Rayon pant suits do little for anyone,
But that’s the level independent agents
Live on. Change quickens so happeningly.
The only families left rely on the glue of hate.

But blind families love the touch
Of feel. Electric angels hover waiting
To touch those who have the faith to grasp:
Just in time to stop our souls’ extinction.

Spiral dyes walk up and down,
Aware that no one interferes with crazies.
Pupils tell the tale of blind families
Feeling the electric dawn of small tomorrow.
