vermontpoem2012 #3

pa, ma, six nearly grown kids reside in
the forest behind my vermont friend’s
rural home the eight wild turkeys
(tom, hen, jakes and jennies) find the
pickings in irena’s garden a smorgasbord
they’ve eaten every blueberry elderberry
raspberry sampled less delectable fare
have had the effrontery to take dust baths
between the rows they gobble in spring
and early summer now just lots of clicks
and clucks to keep the teenagers in line
I ask if there’s a turkey season she could
harvest thanksgiving dinner there is but
she’d have to get a gun learn to use it
besides her brother shot one in canada
where it’s always open season it was sinewy
