RATIONINGS

A Poem by Stefanie Bennett

– After Monsanto & Dow Chemicals

You stride the flat of my hand
Egg of the world.
Painfully shy, you stretch out
Your two new legs
Always on sunset.

To tell the rest of it – how
You crow sky high
And exude
A lament most refuse to hear
Will take
A lifetime of telling.

Egg of the world, even this
They’ll say
Is a lie.
