Leather Interiors That Used To Moo by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

They were taking many pictures of her

in a blow up pool full of goats’ blood

and she said it was for her portfolio

then she took a dead chicken

and rubbed it between her legs

like towelling off

her big break she promised, what was the big deal?

lick a few dismembered cow heads in a bikini

to get ahead

and I thought of that new car smell

of leather interiors that used to moo

as the cameraman told me to get out

of his shots

while the director played

with his lights

and more animals died for art

then artists

for once.
