Think nothing of it
the skirt too tight in the waist
This cake is so good
wait for what’s coming
thunder shouts at the black cows
huddled in the field
I was mistaken
to my advantage perhaps
but still mistaken

I really enjoyed the cow poem because of all those ways in which we use the behaviour of cows to predict the weather. I lived among sheep farms and, I tell you, those sheep knew nothing. The first poem made me chuckle because I enjoy good food far too much to really have an aspiration to get down to my ideal weight. I would like to be less heavy, sure, but not my ideal BMI.
I can remember my grandmother saying when I was very young approvingly what a good appetite I had and ate anything and enjoyed it. Well, that pleasure has stayed with me all my life and glad for it! As for cows, I am interested in them, and I don’t really know why. I think I like their calmness and their utter focus on what is important to them.
Enjoyed all of these! The last was a little painful to think about. I hate to be mistaken but when it is due to withheld information it happens… still not a fun state even with plausible deniability.
