That Milk

Every day I tried to milk that damn cow
and she would kick at me or run away
they said tie her up
drug her
cut your losses
sell her and
start a new business
maybe you’re just not cut out
to be a farmer

I tried at night,
I tried during the day
I tried in a mask
I tried offering her KFC
-nothing

and then
one day,
she just let me

I don’t know
if it was the sun shining
maybe she was paralyzed
or maybe I had just
tried enough times

but that milk
was sweet
and now I can finally
give it up
and move into the city
