A Poem by Dirk Michener

Untitled (Horse and a Cow)
by Dirk Michener

A horse and a cow
Stand still in a
Large field

They stand for a long
Time and sometimes
Move their heads
Up and down or
Side to side

After a while
They lie down and
Go to sleep

The horse and cow
Sleep from sunset
To sunrise and wake

They each walk to
A separate part of
A large stock tank
And drink water

They drink water for
Several minutes then
Urinate and shit

The horse and cow
Mill around
And chew at clumps
Of grass and plants
On the ground

Horse stands under a
Tree and swings its
Long tail

Cow stands by a fence
Looking at other cows
And sometimes shakes
Its head around
And chews.
