He Doesn’t Care What the Papers Say
Forget things like
Fast cars and posh clothes.
Evening mist fills his eyes,
this shepherd and his sheep.
Stars that once breathed in fire,
now blink in patterns of broken
light, and the apple of his eye,
these sheep, who ask nought
but to possess this verdant day.
The shepherd turns his head
against the rain, swears that
his cigarette’s gone wet, and
sets his feet for the next hill.
