she went ungathered,
missed the party,

missed the branding
ropes and vaccinations—
they wear the same look.

Not wild-eyed, but
about half-guilty,
half-sad they didn’t

RSVP. Still a chance
she’ll make the cowherd
like her mother.

    • No, not the only ones. I caught the two renegades, who escaped in Greasy when we branded, with a camera this afternoon, two bloomy bullocks who will sell just fine in June. I’ll post the pair later this week with their own poem.
