More Goats


More goats were going up the hill than were coming down.
So I had to ask myself, What did this mean?
Did it mean that I had to start out my day
with only the plurality of goats that was second to none?
Maybe it meant that I and I alone had to shove
the encumbered hill a little bit further over to the left.
Where the jacket I was set to discard when you arrived to placate me
lied buried in sections near the nail you removed from my hoof.
