My Mother Killed

The following is our son's poem he wrote when he was 17, as a result of my helping a farm cull some chickens for winter. Below is the responding sculpture. This can be seen at Greenfield Community College, along with other sculpture October 6 through November 7, 2015 in Greenfield, Massachusetts

Some chickens in our backyard.

At night the coyotes come to lick the grass.
