The White Tide

It rises
in spirals of grass
twice a day,
at the same hours.

The hoofed bells
from the mountains
shatter the night’s edge,
sending the milk flow
into circular songs.

When you look at
the rows of labeled boxes,
remember the stars
wrapped in prayers,
the dreams
wrapped in moonlight,
the cows,
and the tide.
