Goats and Spiders

Curds and Whey
“Blessed are the cheesemakers.”
~Monty Python, Life of Brian

Temperatures regulate
and acid swirls; curds curdle

and tell reluctantly
of brown bearded goats

chomping grass
with pliant teeth and wandering

eyes. Far off in a kitchen.
the maker, with her chewed

apron and dangling cross
waits sourly for the spider.
