If you ain't yet 'et to the salience of kidneys
thumb-peeled from the trough next to backbone
of interior of a chicken thigh
Mayhaps you are missin' some ecstasy from eatin'.
Flip thigh to exterior,
still close to backbone,
and you'll find you the "oyster",
rounded disc, so delicious, best of the dark meat.
Both snugged to spine,
where just might expect them.
My first of encounters
Were with thighs from the Colonel
But now do experience them
at a lunchplace of Thai
They are good with their cleavers
as they whack the thigh close to that exquisite backbone
Using full meat for the rest of their dishes
Yet frying and serving that one inch of the spine,
That harbors the oysters and kidney divine.
Ye who have suckled to kidneys and oysters,
Have you a chorus?
