what the cow thought

she lay atop a grassy knoll
this elderly Holstein
her coat the color of chalk ‘n coal
what thoughts run through her mind?

she remembers an endless field
where silver fish leapt from a stream
the swishing of the tail she’d wield
against the insects that would teem

or perhaps she dreams of a day
before the humans came
when she was still young enough to play
and possessed her own special name
