The Second Person of the Cow





The Second Person of the Cow (Draft beginning)


1.

how fantastic that these words are here
how fantastic that these words are somewhere else
how dark is it inside a cow?
no darker than inside these words

stretch your tongue and feel
the Pop Rocks of the stars
how fantastic that you are here
how fantastic that you are somewhere else

2.

fantastic deer as fantastic cows
fantastic ice as fantastic does
fantastic calves as fantastic legs
Oh fantastic is the light of fantastic cows

and yes, O light of fantastic cows
born to be fantastic
how fantastic is the tongue that furrows plow
how fantastic are your cows that constellate

3.

O moon O tongue O fantastic insides of dark and fatal cows
like crows which flourish in your furrowed shadows
how fantastic to have fallen down a well
to have lived beneath the tragic bucket

how fantastic that the moon is an ouroboros or cow of fantastic light
how it dines upon the tragic or fantastic fields
the terrible or hermaphrodite stars
the calves or the legs, the fantastic tongue of absent crows
