The Rich Taste Like Chicken

sharp movements of lizards
of chickens, feathered dinosaurs
driving the hands that grab
the hands that take
that seize
dragging cash across
every empty table
every unstained plate
while hungry eyes
hungry minds

maybe thinking
maybe wondering
if such hands
might feed families
might taste
like chicken

Anne is busy running up that hill.
