It is well known that Baba Yaga's hut
Has chicken legs and a will of its own.
It is bigger inside than out. Some say
That a man might wander for years
Down its ever-branching corridors
And emerge in good time to witness
His own birth. One may leave prayers
Under the doormat; they will be delivered
Though not necessarily to the gods
For whom they were intended.
