Warped Chopstick - Poem by Katharine Byrd

In a pack of plenty,
Bowed I stand out.
I am maimed, but not useless.
I am used to test the palate.

I confuse, confound and frustrate those who touch me.
Yet on they come, trying their ways to manipulate me.

I am good for many things,
But only encompassed for one.
