No cows to look at  

No cows to look at
I hear the truck traffic

Everything changes like clouds
The page this poem is on burns

Coming from the funeral with friends
Talking on the telephone

No trucks to grind their gears
I hear the minute hand moving

Birds and people inhabit the earth
A black bear inhabits the earth, too

A rock in the sun
Calligraphy brush

In a mind there is apocalypse
No one can hear it

Helpful? Thumbs UpThumbs Down
Complex thought
The title grabbed my attention. The poem took me on a journey of urban images and its conflict with nature which could be an eventual catastrophe. I am sure that if I read it again, I would get something different. Nicely written.

Very cool
"No cows to look at" to me says nothing to latch onto in the conscious stream as one line is destroyed by the next bit of passing nonsense. I think you stated very well the inner apocalypse that is always taking place in a creative mind, while behind every phrase there is also the potential for the genesis of something new. If only we could harness the power of ADHD and schizophrenia. I'm glad I took a look at this little heifer!
