The Cockfight


The eyes twitch, their backs bend forward and the claws sharpen. Drama floats above and opportunities for eruption come. Arms begin to wave in the air, voices escalate and released are all the old annoyances. The shedding of tears, the memories of past issues and current ones surface. The soap opera begins and spoken words hurt greater than intended. Suddenly it becomes clear that the placement of dishes in the dishwasher is not the actual problem, but that two overworked parents need rest. We hope that the world won’t chop off our heads and we instead return to our chicken coop.
