From next (1988), "my dream about the cows" Summary

This is a poem about a recurring dream. The poet rushes into the dream with the conjunction "and," seeing the cattle of her town, cows that have been rustled or stolen. The cowboys smell wrong, and they have shoved the cows into permanent pens. The cows are thin and "weeping low," a nice pun on the sound of cows. They live in fields that provide hardly any living and so they don't produce milk. They stand but barely so. Immediately she realizes that these cows equal despair, a personal despair, and she begins to descend into her usual despair until she realizes that she's having the dream about cows once more.
