If you expected a Valentine


If You Were Expecting Valentines

If you were expecting Valentines,
it’s too late. I sent them flying out into the wind
last night.  Some  lay on the ground this morning

glistening. The roosters picked them up one

by one and gave them to their sweethearts, showing
they are indeed more than just a list of drumsticks,
with extra for the soup pot.  By the way, for Valentines Day
I’m making a big pot of chicken soup. It’s simmering on
the stove now. And snow begins to fall.
