c o o k e d that little bird
 1
ate it

tasted like a chicken ought too
 3
 
 
the pigs' kidneys
 4
f r y, strong healthy smell
 5
am i cooking them proper?
 6
 
 
can i ask anyone?
 7
who, there, knows, anymore, these days?
 8
how to handle these delicate meats?
 9
 
 
how to r e a l l y fire
 10
a little bird (not on the menu)
 11
or the organs of a pig?
 12
 
 
who can i ask?
 13
maybe history
 14
but history continually makes it up
 15
 
 
so instead i'll just say
 16
pigs organs cooked properly
 17
are delicious
 18
 
 
s m a l l  birds
 19
cooked properly
 20
are delicious
 21
 
 
history may forget at times

meateating penchants and absolutes
