Chickens and Eggs ~ illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company








When the busyness and crazies
Go swirling around my head
When the future and past collide
With something full of only dread.

That’s when
I must hollow out a niche
And cuddle there instead.

Cause no one has
Ever heard of chicken soup
To ease the sop
That fills my head.
