Haven't been writing much lately. Which explains this.


As The Crow Flies

‘How would you know, you weren’t there’
Said the crow with the magpie’s feather in its hair
Bone in its beak and salt in its eye
Knowing and growing with hand against thigh

Hoarding its treasures and self assured claps
Sits in a nest of newspaper scraps
‘Patience is virtue’ are the wise words
Of the old crow who plays mocking bird

Wingtip to wingtip isn’t quite straight
As is the flight bound figure of eight
Suspended on lines in a moment of grace
That scowls and pecks tears straight from its face

Claws around wood and smirks skin deep
Liquorice wings to cut off and keep
‘How would you know, you weren’t there’
Said the crow with the magpie’s feather in its hair.
