CROWS-IN-VAN-GOGHS-BEDROOM

~
Van Gogh’s bedroom by Gogh
~
these days I avoid mirrors
as reflections of loved ones
gaze back at me
~
memories refuse to stay put
crowding nightly in murders
of crows come a visiting
~
laid low by pneumonia shot
I gaze at them quizzically vainly
deciphering their coded tidings
~
weaving in and out
of sleep awake moments
I finally rise to splash face
~
heaving bedroom
no longer floats, crows
have vanished too
~
