The milking machine
has a huge belt
to turn the wheels
Before the sun
I’ve got a fire
in the boiler
making ready
for when the cows come
and when it’s all over
the whole place
scrubbed cement and stone
The huge belt
silent again
just holds the wheels
The slops
have gone to the pigs
the cows
have gone eating
my fire is ash
The huge belt is safe
somewhere in the shed
at rest until evening
No one knows
I love the belt.
