14 FT. 2 by 4s

up above the hay
was a space between the rafters
spanned by fourteen foot two by fours
where the long lumber was kept
dust sifting down through the air
dark blood of the light
dirt angels
new evidence has been uncovered
in the stalls
strange mechanical sounds issue
from the jaws of life
teeth closed so tight
you could make your money sweat
sitting on the hay
with the wide doors open
and the drainage ditch gurgling
into the pond
feeding the rushes clacking together,
the goat changes into a waterfall of energy
grinding up the floorboards
with untrimmed hooves.
