Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writer 07/01/20


If you’ve ever felt
The blunt blades of hunger
Fell tinted trees in your tummy,
You’d till the hills.

If you’ve ever seen hunger
Rough-ride you to that land
Where one’s own spit turns salty
You’d man the land.

If you’ve ever heard
Intestinal cockerels crow
For food down their hurt,
You’d love your job.

I too have felt
Its blunt blades in my tummy,
Its sharp spin in my eyes.
These bones are lonesome

Searching for flesh to cuddle?
Lazy limpet, why should you;
Why should I burry my strength
For hunger to hung me up?
