The cow-fisher
makes his lures
from wet balled-up hay
and taunting tufts
of dangling fresh grass -
Quite beautiful, really -
It is an art
to approximate cud.

The sport itself
can be harrowing -
strapped in the harness
leaning out the propped-open door
of the helicopter
swinging the line -
Disaster if
he hits a snag.

But making a strike -
setting the wench
reeling one in -
Well, that's the challenge -
She knows she's been tricked -
grunts kicks groans twists
as she's lifted skyward.
