Post 227: cows, birthday party, soiree, celebration, South, NOW

by Carol Bass



Porterhouse and Cadillac
eating their cabbages and tomatoes
their bread from the PIGGLY WIGGLY
the white circle swath of Cadillac’s
Belted Galloway body is interrupted
doesn’t go all the way around his tummy

the white line waits
cozy under his belly
where it knows the people are smiling
forgetting devastation, war, poverty
for a second
just loving these 2 cows
eating their carrots and corn
