The Kitchen Shears Speak Analysis

This division must end.

Again I'm forced to amputate

the chicken's limb; slit the joint,

clip the heart, snip wing from back,

strip fat from flesh, separate

everything from itself. I'm used,

thrown down by unknown hands,

by cowards who can't bear to do

the constant severing. Open and close!

Open and close. I work and never tell.

Though mostly made of mouth, I have no voice,

no legs. My arms are bent, immobile

pinions gripped by strangers. I fear

the grudge things must hold.

I slice rose from bush, skin from muscle,

head from carrot, root from lettuce,

tail from fish. I break the bone.

What if they join against me,

uncouple me, throw away one-half,

or hide my slashed eye? Or worse,

what if I never die? What I fear

most is being caught, then rusted rigid,

punished like a prehistoric

bird, fossilized, and changed

into a winged lizard, trapped while clawing

air, stuck in stone with open beak.
