my skull is not a human skull though,
it is a cattle skull from a cow.
mine has leather,
but only left on half of its face
and it has both horns.
if i put it in the sun,
it will be all white one day.

No. You've got contemporary, or at least headed in that direction, but a wrong turn somewhere has left you with an absolutely appalling poem.
At least your original. Even though u are lacking some stuff.
l8 should be "even the teeth". l1 "though" though is unnecessary. The poem is pure metaphor without relation to the real world.
A cattle skull from a cow? Didn't see that coming...
It time for you, hank, to wake up.
Congradulations, you're medically deformed.
No, seriously though, Zep's got a point and put it to words. There still, also, doesn't seem to be meaning behind half of it being left or how it has both horns.
i thought i muttered this and heard. then i felt the legs not touch the ground. swinging. i like this.
i think hank means the teeth are even zepp. hanks saying he's got the head of a bull, he's got a tough side! he's no sissy poet!
did you sculpt this o'keeffe moment?
Its horrible. Nobody cares that you look like a cow.
Its a good idea not worked through
and... if you put it in the cellar. Oh, skulls. Do you collect skulls? First editions?
Where did you find your skull? I once travelled with a decomposing turtle skull. My companion at the time agreed to toss it when the maggots began to party.
ok, so i'm catching up with you. your work, your insistence in going through these old dust devils is a wonderful gift to me, do you know?. rereading is a wonderful experience, albeit seemingly self indulgent. but not really.
a very good lesson. would like to return the favor to you or someone. (cause i don't know who you are). t-hanks.
It's my pleasure, hank. And now... on to the next. "Beach," is it?
