Bovinae At Large
No longer a bellow no pungent aroma no insect infestation or pristine groomed coat no pointed horns to threaten or charging at pace no clouds of toxic dust, rising to pollute the dank ether just my image of your existence reminding me and descendants that once you gave up life proffering sustenance keeping me alive in Green Spain, my home though now you are gone except in my mind recreated on my walls tinted in strokes, from red and black pigment and the sweat of my brow then once every millennia I return paying homage to your existence and being to Cantabria at the cave for I am a spirit mere abstract illusion seeping from my Valhalla only surviving in death and Altamira.
