jet black raven sitting boldly and
brazenly on a rickety old rotting fence post,
cries out to his mate nearby. the eerie voice,
rhapsody rendition of melodic notes. the music is like
a revolving, repeating and scratching record.
birds are continually calling in a deeper richer
and darker sound. black and darkened eyes
pierce the soul of the onlooker, as he casts his sight

as both mother’s woo child and bird alike.
in the shadows of life
heartaches befall both child and bird.
