Using the Cow Switch

There are too many people
……..driving past these empty trucks
…………………………………….and cattle trailers
…………parked on both sides of the otherwise too narrow road
perhaps a hundred trucks
………with fifty north and fifty south
…………..of  Blanchard’s farm and its broad entryway of dirt

The auction is unfolding
……..I imagine bellowing from both sides
……………….as all tread about in one’s ripe dung
…………..the bright half in their rubbers

Not a man in twenty there
…………..and fewer up here on the road I’ll wager
…………………..wonders what the cows will think tonight
……or would even take exception to a statement
………………………that they think not much at all

About which shoulder sunlight strikes
………………………………there in the stanchion
………………how the water tastes
………………………………..or leaving home
