Silly Poem – To Be Eaten

A response to Joseph Auslander’s poem: In Envy of Cows

Why poeticize about the non-life of a cow,

and why the envy?

As the cow tastes the edge of August,

it licks at the knife edge –

that turns the flavour of lush pastures

into offal.

Tongue fed to the September dogs that

yesterday

nipped at her ankles,

before being cruelly wrenched                        away

from their autumn

dinner.
