The sight of lamb

in the medium distance.  You are hungry, but

you’ve been demanding only

firstborns for so long, for

fires and breakfasts

that cause coughing draughts.  you cover

your eyes

when you touch the wool to

your face.  You promised a young man

and his young bride that

they would buy their first house.  they

wash each other’s skin, they

wipe each other’s waste after

the toilet.  you can sink your teeth in, but

you power is gone.
