So I says to the guy, I says,

10May10

Here’s a poem I really like!

(Also, I’m about to write my fourth Think Piece of the year, and will be posting it here soon.  In the meantime, enjoy!)

The Two-Headed Calf

Tomorrow, when the farm boys find this
freak of nature, they will wrap his body
in newspaper and carry him to the museum.

But tonight he is alive and in the north
field with his mother. It is a perfect
summer evening: the moon rising over
the orchard, the wind in the grass.
And as he stares into the sky, there
are twice as many stars as usual.
