I moved to the city 
from the country
because of people;
because of cows
Some time ago
Lydia Davis moved from the city 
to the country
but cows distracted her
she said she moved there for peace
and quiet but the cows 
out her kitchen window commanded
all her attention all day every day
She said she thought, “How 
am I supposed to get any work done?”

This is not like what happened to me
but when I think about what happened to me
I like to think of this
