Today's poem is by Abayomi Animashaun
Anecdote of a Goat
There, is one with slackened tie.
Beside him an old paper and a black umbrella.
He is dreaming of his lost love;
A goat with no horns, hooves, and hide.
With the voice of a saddened woman
Her head buried in the wet corners of her blouse.
She is dreaming of a man with horns, hooves, and hides.
Beside him an old paper and an umbrella.
His neck-tie slackened, he too is lost in a dream.
One he'll soon forget: of a man dreaming himself
Loving a goat desperate for a woman dreaming the man.
