The Rumford Falls Times tells
of a man at Vigilante Farm under
a photo of him, carrying feed on his back,
with five piglets following beside, behind.
(They might be thinking, if pigs do think,
adorations of the man. Not for his mind
but what he carries in his sack.)
The Times tells how the man’s
made sure he would not love
or grow attached. He named the piggies
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Supper, Snack.
They follow him, headed out of the photo
into the newsprint, unconcerned,
blinded by love. His name is
Sack of Food on Back.
