Just One More

She moved away out here to get away 
from people, from a job that buried her under 
other people’s problems. We’re rural here. 

She settled in a place with barn and corral, 
got a horse but doesn’t ride. Adopted a dog 
and two barn cats plus one for the house. 

Added some pens and got a nanny goat, 
two sheep, one pig, two hens, a rooster and 
a husband but like most other humans 

he had his problems. Before long he was gone. 
She put out grain for wild turkeys, a saltlick 
to lure in deer. Jackrabbits who ravage gardens 

here and there. Coyote keeps to edges, hawk 
to thermals and the owl to dark. Last night 
we heard the most blood-curdling cry from her 

direction. Husband back with a gun? No
country home’s complete without a peacock 
screaming murder.

    Great imagery and I love the twist at the end Taylor! Our friends are plagued by peacocks their neighbour has 5 and they create mayhem in their garden:-( hugs Jan xx
