Counting Crows - Poem by Mark Pollins

Jumping, sliding along a blue rail,
The crow seems at home next to the half-eaten somethings
On plates, in the open-air restaurant.
Another one, cheekier than the first, lands
On one of the white plates, pecks, attacks a piece of dry bread.
The loud resonating tune the four crows make –
A celebration of crumb and dried something, perhaps –
Causes me to feel at home, at ease with them.

    Crows celebrating stray bread crumbs.At least they are happy keeping from earthly possessions like branded fresh bread crumbs. (Report)Reply
