a murder of crows


driving
on thirty-sixth avenue
half-way between
the hospital
and home
I passed
the casket company truck
making morning deliveries

on the hill
was a murder of crows
I thought
then what do you call
a truckload of caskets?

a circumstance?

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
