From 'Moo' to You

Poetics Aside Prompt: Write a milk poem. This could be about the moo-juice kind of milk. Or it could explore milk metaphorically, as in the expression “milk of human kindness.” Of course it could also be about the act of milking something. And no, it doesn’t have to be nourishing.

Sip it, gulp it
Chocolate, white
Perfect beverage
Day or night
With your cookies
On its own
Teeth and bones
Healthy too
Won’t you have
A glass of ‘moo’?

Good for baby
Kids, grandmas
Favorite drink
for Santa Claus
In the blender
With your fruit
In a pot
Of creamy soup
Cold, nutritious
Splash of silk
Won’t you have
A glass of milk?
