White Cow and Brown Bull

I was a white cow
being led by a shadow tree
back to the barn. I could not
fit
through the door until
I was
shrunk down
to a more manageable size.
Inside the barn
the brown bull was mounting the heifer.
I was guided to my stall.
On the clean hay
lay two calves,
one two and the other one,
dead from neglect.
I felt nothing
and trotted back out to pasture.
