“Anguish” by August Friedrich Albrecht Schenck (1878) mother bleats a cloud,
standing over its dead lamb --
ringed by a murder

the bull doesn't feign stealth,
yet gets close enough to make
shoppers poop themselves

beside the river
with aimless purpose
I met a ram in Madurai,
'twas tethered to a pole.
Though really it almost met me,
taking its cyclic stroll.
The ram's target was my keister,
but its rope was too short.
Saved by the narrowest margin;
my path I did abort.
The moral of this tale is clear.
If you're in Madurai,
give tethered rams the widest berth,
or kiss your ass goodbye.

sees its pond reflection,
but resumes forthwith
