I have a crow.
We're pretty tight. I bring him dog food and almonds.
And he leaves me bottle caps, foil and various other pieces of shiny garbage he thinks I will like.
I forgot to video me collecting my treasure.
Then, i replace the treasure with treats for him.
We both really like it.
He visits me at home a lot too. .

So many tomorrows, and tomorrow never comes! Love has turned into a crow, or so it seems to me. In what region of this impossible dawn behind the mountains does the sun keep its chariot? Vain hope uselessly pursues me, like a clumsy ship or lame mule; for Barbarossa himself would not treat me the way you treat me, Juana. Love and I go seeking together this morning.

Oh, sweet madness! Always tomorrow, and we never reach tomorrow. Well, if I cannot conquer your indifference, may the crows on these green branches peck out your eyes. But no; they are mine!
--Lope de Vega (Translated from Spanish)

Hop, hop, hop, you move effortlessly from branch to branch.

Wings flutter, but seem barely needed as you descend. Limb by limb, eyes always on your next move.

A hood and cloak of black, a highwayman’s jacket for a highwayman’s bird, covering bold blue beneath. A crest, streaked with sky blue reaching toward the heavens.

Hard not to notice you.

Eyes piercing, as you glare from your perch. Warning call like a siren, announcing your presence. Gaze locked on us, telling us to beware. Mammals and birds alike keep their distance, you say.

Your yard, your turf. You’ve made this your space.
--Jeremy Schwartz

"The morning begins with whispering jays, and the waving of magpie flags.
We will dance with tumbleweeds in the pungency of sage."
__________
(excerpt from James McGrath's "the Shadow of the Mountains")

There is a magpie inside me next to the turtle and dragonfly.

It speaks at odd hours. At night it awakens my dreaming foxes.

It flies to far-off places holding clouds tight among its feathers its beak carrying juniper berries.

It builds its nest in Spring before all snow melts. It listens to the seeping sounds of Winter weeping.

There is a magpie inside me next to the horse and the pterodactyl.

It waits, expecting hummingbirds to share their honey.

It preens its wings, making shining mirrors for iridescent beetles and star-eyed gnats.

It never sleeps.

It carries the sun from one horizon to the other.

It presses its head to my chest, it sings of loneliness and wild iris. --James McGrath
