Driving Past 27 Pigs in the Middle of June With the Windows Open by Gary E. Walker
published in Volume 1, Issue 2 on March 15, 1994

Pigs don't care for bacon.
I flash by, an orange blur to
Pig-poor eyes, staring
Blearily, thoughts
Of sows, and slop and mud
Percolating behind them.

Unhurried pork on the hoof,
Cloven (could Satan be a pig?) to
Slog through mud and hay
And yesterday's pork product.
Finally settling with porcine permanence,
Piggy heads hatching no plots.
