Broken Coppice Crowns

Some Grimm mutilation
a wicked daughter’s half hewed foot
burned to cinders behind ornately framed
fireplaces filled
with broken coppice crowns
like lottery tickets
or words that end with q –
when matrimony’s favors japed
did wooden toes replace
or beggar’s thrones capsize
their ill timed improvisation?
Perhaps scene exeunt restored
half-feet and wits,
in some eucathartic plot twist.
