Baba Yaga and Her Chicken Shacks



(where did you think chicken shacks come from?)



(she raises them in her garden)



(they frolic around the blue roses and valerian, and eat healthy amounts of bug legs and children's fingers)



(in the morning she puts on that old dusty coat and big black boots, and stomps into the chilly yard where they greet her, chirping, and chomping the tiny sharp teeth in their keyholes.)



(the world needs more baba yaga.)


I am very happy to tell you that:
