Cock-crow ’til owl-hoot I toil. Feeding the hens, slopping the pigs, animal-speak my only communication. Long ago I stopped using words with Josiah, morose and silent man. Holding warm udders, I rhythmically pull. Brown eyes thank me. You’re welcome, I whisper back. My only happiness is this, speaking in tongues.
