The Feast

Isabell Banache
Arts for the Aging 

The black kettle is securely waiting
The water bubbling with a reddish film
Oh the wait of the unknown in darkness.
Surrounded by family and friends
Our quarters are grossly crowded.
A voice is heard:
The surrounding darkness is filled
with a powerful rumbling noise.
Our world is upside down.
The heat of the water is getting warmer and warmer.
Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle
Soon I will be ready to become
someone’s delicacy at a luscious feast.
