Never Stop While On The Motorway by Nigel Quinian
I saw a cow crossing an overpass while driving on the motorway today. A second cow followed behind, and, with completely even spacing, a third. Their feet didn’t seem to move, or their heads, nor any part of them. I pulled over and climbed the slope until I reached the top, and saw an endless line of cows stretching down a straight road on either side of the overpass. Between each cow sunlight glistened on a connecting length of fishing wire. Over the sound of passing cars, I heard the squeaking of the casters on each hoof of each cow.
