Weaned Again

I consider milk her choice.
She’s welcome to it.
She’s welcome to eschew it.

She’s a mammal. She was nursed.
She need not suckle from cows
Or goats. Water and sugar
Deluge her, lacking lactose.

For a few hundred lifetimes
It behooved her ancestors
To digest domesticates’
Excess, best way to survive.

Now’s a new dispensation.
Water, nuts, legumes, and fruit
Milk transubstantiation.
