Kicking

Hot blood
splashes the stretched surface
of my young face
as the goat is being killed.

We have not much money
so get only one hind leg
and the eyeballs,

While most of the rest
goes to the family of the lawyer
who saved my shrieking mother from the police.

But the head will stay here
with the butcher
once the goat stops kicking.

It's a good Easter for everyone.
