three crows walked into a painting

 

 

these morning glories
these sharp-toed harbingers
of daybreak

dipping from highway sign to red-lathered
gesso     who sees these patient wings
who sees thrice flown

 

(three crows are rarely found alone)

  1. I have to admit, when I first read “three crows walked into a painting,” I thought, “This sounds like the beginnings of a really unique joke.” Instead, of course, it was a very cool poem. Really enjoying my reading here.
