I wonder what the pecking order is.
do the hens who lay brown eggs lord it over the
one who lay in white
satin sheets draped over custom nesting boxes
the larger ones with purple trimming.
I would be so jealous with my worn
flannel sheets and ripped pajama top.
my socks don't match and my car
has peeling paint.
I'd be a hen laying in a satin box,
receiving a daily massage and a rooster
I'd croon with pride when my eggs were
picked up and packed in a purple box
to match my bed.
