the drains in this building
were already old when Queen Victoria passed by
they gurgle and murmur making that comforting sound you hear
from deep within a warm cow as you lean your cheek into
her soft flank
rub your hands together to warm them
take hold of the taut velvet udder
and release the stream of steaming milk
into the gleaming bucket
