iii. hot cows

Updated: Apr 18, 2021

We drive out listening to Bruce Springsteen. The road is unpaved, rocky. We bounce up and down in our seats. My stomach starts to feel sick from all the bumping. I never know where we are. We stop suddenly and I am thrown forward and crash against the front seat. Some cows are crossing the road, including a black baby cow with a white spot in the shape of a heart. We wait for the herd to pass, but they are taking their time, grazing around. I wonder how these cows are not steaks already in this heat.
