epigram [from Susan Howe's THE BIRTH-MARK] followed by a comment of sorts

Ground and dont suffer your Cattle to tread upon it
and so poach and break the soil, and you will never
want any Dung.

Diary of John Adams, Tuesday, June 25, 1771


DUNG Hog Horses Oxen Cows
And Sheep



We knew their names once because we had spoke of
Them to our neighbor
And at market.
