Windsor

Robert Carr


With
fingers spread wide a bonny boy

walks
the country fair.  His hands turn out

to
catch the smells, to see through palms,

to
taste with the white space beneath

his
little nails.  He touches everything –

the
flat nosed pigs rutting in a white-washed stall,  

the
draft horse muscle steam, the cow flows

of
milk and piss – the animals rise to meet him,

through
damp skinned pits they stumble knobby kneed.
