CROWS-IN-VAN-GOGHS-BEDROOM

“There is no greater sorrow
Than to recall a happy time
When miserable.”

Comparisons
Ravens and crows
draw me so
they collect shiny
objects
I collect laughter
et timepieces
they are harbingers
of the grim reaper
I’ve out- stared
death a few times
they are raucous
scavengers
I usually giggle
at everything
they swoop
beak and zoom
I make proverbial
chess knight moves
~
time ticks mercilessly, removing
shiny gem studded pins from trinket box
I pin faith and hope on my collar, with jaunty
step, hat’s brim angled just so, on daily basis
saucily walk about in life,
laughter leaking
from loosely pursed
quivering lips
that is my style
~
nostalgia is usually not what it’s cracked up to be
getting glossed over and embellished in retelling
~
me

“Crows and people share similar traits and social strategies. To a surprising extent, to know the crow is to know ourselves.” – John M. Marzluff
