Deer Life

ready to get pregnant again the doe
decides that the fawn is old enough
to learn to take care of itself lightly
leaps the fence leaving the fawn on
the horses' side throwing itself at the
fence in terror the mare (Chinita)
furious with a savage scream kicks
the fawn breaking its back leg then
picks it up in her teeth and shakes it
goes on screaming raging as Carol
lassos the fawn and drags it away
ties it to the old walnut tree calls a
friend ends its misery with a bullet
