we sowed wild seeds in the pasture 
to make the cows more comfortable.
in the springtime, the pasture bloomed 
and we had happy cows on happy soil.

we laid a little farmhouse in the pasture 
to have a place in which to put a family.
in the summertime, we danced all night
drunken fumbling over trampled flowers.

we built a barbed wire fence in the pasture 
to make us feel less anxious about the cows 
stampeding through our house, but the cows
wanted nothing to do with the farmhouse 
where all the pretty flowers used to grow.
