52 Crows, Week 28

Keening

 

In the centre of President’s Park,

she stands, arms outstretched,

cradling a taxidermic crow

in the palms of her hands;

 

presenting it to the world

like a sacrifice. Black wings

murder a blue sky

then weigh down

 

the top branches.

Deafen the dog-walkers,

joggers and chess-players

with their screeching and cawing.

 

They jump from branch

to branch and then,

as quick as they arrived,

fly away; respects paid.
