i eat chicken, the world knows i do. my life is a mother hen, punishing me for eating so much ******* chicken. but once a day she gives me one good thing, a single egg to hold onto.
i always break it. one day i received a golden egg she conceived. told me “you know what will happen if you eat more chicken again.” i promised her i would not, and i kept that egg warm in a feather bed, staying up till 5am smothering it with love and heat.
the morning i saw the gold flaking off, i cried. mother had tricked me into eating no chicken. it was a fake. i wanted to strangle her, that **** mother hen. what would become of us if i snapped her neck. no more eggs.
