Giant Cow Statues

I felt something pure

in the shadows of

a giant cow statue

something innocent

like the labor of mankind

to create, to replicate

what nature first aroused

to catch the drips from the utters

to feed

each other as we build lives

that two syllables

from birth to death

is a soft sustaining moo


as my young daughter scurries

beneath the

cow statue

as the smart data

cellular waves

pass through the

farm animals on the journey to

finger touch

dusk continues to lure

each bird, person, rabbit

mankind continues to create

statues of nature

of derivatives

giant pigs and giant manatees

investing souls

yodeling to each other

calls of a cowherd

daddy take me to the cow

daddy daddy take me to the cow
