lady tencows


they laugh, 'a woman's worth one cow'

she

      halt by her father's hand

and mawmaw's cross-eyed bull

was  well  worth  less

                                bold-tongued,

opined about the length of thatch

and how the sun peers in our hut

to make the day a longer day

and me

            more of laughter's fool


but she can read the stars

and mix a brew to tend the night

and tether sorrows

with arms that know the length of love


they watch her on the path

blinking at her broad-brimmed hat

while she

standing at the edge of all we know,

scatters words

                      ten cows i gave for her

                      ten cows was all i had
