Cows

Bones jutting out like weatherworn ledges and a tail not unlike the lion's. The weird geography of their bodies as they jump over a brook the air itself holding them clumsily in its invisible folds.

The movement of their mouths in the awkward light full of grass, empty of verb.

About these ads

Ears, the ears of a cow and the wholeness of a moon in their eyes.

Dew-laden nostrils sweet as clover, Udders pendulous, wobbly, milk-heavy.

Casual as the daisies themselves the sun-work of cows.
