Dressed in yeller

She talks
to birds
and trusts her future
to rat couture.

Her life is not yet full of
Boy Scouts and
bedtime stories,
constant questions
and cuddles,

of the joys of being
both Queen and mother.

Will she ever dream of
returning to the ash pile
of no responsibilities and
mindless labor?
