I have been to American only a few months and often drive by cows while I
am on my way to the border. I tried humping a cow after first reading this
poem because I wanted to be american-like (americans are odd and strange,
but they invented mcdonalds and those are made of cows!) But my stool
wasn't long enough--but I did give the cow a tip for it's services. The
milk was rather nice to drink.. better than the milk from my homeland.

This poem, out of a majority of E.E.'s more "traditional" works, stands
out for its provocative nature. Many scholors have debated weather or not
beastiality is an allegory for personal fears. However in my research I
have discorverd writings which indicate that E.E. may have had many sexual
encounters with animals as a child. This information came from one of his
childhood friends who had lived on a barn and had wrote an anthology of
memoirs growing up with E.E.. These had never been published but they were
discovered. In descript detail this anthology continues to describe their
homo-erotic behaviors. This could be the basis behind this poem.
