orange juice

three ochre and red monks
tossing a rubber chicken

the children laugh
the sun rises
light fills the room

the parents shield their eyes
one runs for the blinds

a monk picks him off
with the chicken

* “orange juice” appeared as the poem of the day in Haggard & Halloo Junuary 6, 2007
