Tin Roof Rusted

tin roof rusted2

A record sun on a cornflake morning,
corrugated, the roof: a goat horning
could fly away but chooses to stay
and call the faithful to pray
| to kneel under rusted tin |
for runnels of rain to drain in the furrows
of fields running past horizons
on display, all that the ruminant surveys
with her television eyes recording.
