What has industrial slaughter got to do with poetry? "The Cow" performs an autopsy of the twentieth century on the bodies of ruined women, ransacking texts from the Bible to "Baudelaire" and "The Merck Veterinary Manual". It is hopeless, sexual, scarified, and alive. "No doubt about it, this is strong and original work. Scary in the best possible way." - Richard Foreman.
