1. The First Cow
enchanted by sunlight and moonlight.
immortality is in the size of the dog
who barks at the farmhouse door.
2. The Second Cow
a ravine full of thorns and sharp stones.
hold this gloomy heart in your hand to warm it.
the great white bull waits at the end of the nothing.
3. The Third Cow
begin inside the body.
this is no one’s birth but your own.
4. In a Gnarled Wood
the moon rabbit
has gone tharn
under the hole in the sky.
