The Exposed Long Neck Of A Crow - Poem by Kae Morii

Since the low of hanging one
Executioners ceased doing
Sometimes crows have been hung

After one had stolen the fire of God
The field has burned down fiercely

Even now
The view is the original

Even if the sun were eclipsed
In the etched magnetic field
A crow is hung

the execution of the cow
beyond reach of the human spirit of animals

Can you see the person
With a straw rope
Who goes to the wild field?
