Copper Cattle


Copper Cattle


In the near distance,

copper cattle

with long glass horns, 

have stopped,

in a yellow field,


yellow against black foothills,

black against ochre mountains,


that point like steeples 

to white clouds grazing

in the maya blue sky.


They stare from dark tourmaline eyes.


They don’t know 

what maya blue means.
