stilldead crow on the January sidewalk
"that never happens," "I know!"
stop and say
eulogy over a crow

de-murdered/ exposed/ left frozen alone
in peaceful eternal repose
stop and play
requiem for a crow

wings unflapped grey eyes staring forever
talons in their final unclutch
stop and pay
homage to a crow

sing, savor each crumb, love life now and now
as kak always flows to shava
take away
a token from a crow
