The World's Loneliest Sheep

by phoebe kalid

- for fiona, who was stranded for two years on the shore of

the moray firth in scotland.

weatherworn ruminant bleats

after passing boats, the years

an angry love:

spume casts aspersions

on the idle gorse; rain

begs stone to soften.

there were fields, once—

she remembers. maybe

even a mother.
