two ravens

.

Two ravens haunch apart against the rain.

.

I have cleverly scattered the contents of the dog-foul bin,

Cast about the human detritus in their so-called-civilized guise,

Now what to do but sit and honk singularly

.

I shall watch the innocent foals fumble

Greeted by the rest of the tribe

Nibbling at each others shoulder

.

And fly to meet you, massively black and shiny,

In the thick wet warm grey air

Where we shall plan our next great mischief together

.

Safe in our immanent ever-knowing.
