Big brother loves to eat prawns
by the dozen. He'd break their
necks sucking down that fatty
headmeat.
Leaving them nothing but a zombified shell,
compliant as you throw them away.
Their use is through.
In between slurps he slurs together
a sentence. Something about
prawns, sharks, and people.
After dinner I take a walk,
past the hammeredheads and the jumbo shrimp of
the neighborhood. Trying to think of ways
to grow hands and feet.
