aroundtown poem #2

john knoepfle has a poem
that lists the dogs of auburn
I learned in college that
poems often have lists
especially epics that’s one way
you can tell an epic
so here are the cows
in the round barn, 1914:
marie, beauty, princess,
lassie, easter, may,
fantine, fern, gladys,
elsie, gretchen, hester
and here are the noonans
who work at noonans hardware
on north grand avenue
just those noonans
for there are more:
missy, luke, kevin,
kerry, sean, maureen,
matt three, matt four
