To Breed or Not to Breed

by

Wendy Chapman

 

Charging fraudulent.
Self prosecution.

A distraction here, a distraction there.

Draining focus that
faltered from the beginning.

Piling addictions.
Dwindling purpose.

I watched a mother
finish shopping
and buckle her children safe.
As she situated her staples
I wondered
if that life
was peace
and reward.

Do I fool myself?
Conjuring this comb of drones?
Breeders
produce
honey.

It's copy after copy...
but it tastes so damn good.
