The Crow

American Crow.jpg



Shame about the old bird

sitting on the beaten post.

Old bird, old ways

wearing stolen feathers.

Should we pity the plagerist

or let her be flattered by the false praise?

Old crow, old mimic,

don’t turn around

someone else

is stealing your feathers

and the coming winter

is blue cold for a bare soul.
