this morning, before sunlight touches the streetlight
a young crow lands on the metal arc
and makes its mark
by fluttering its wings, as if it were a songbird
with that quick vibrating movement that sparrows make
when they burrow in sandy soil

this crow, before day gets too bright
catches my eye
and just sits awhile
in my thoughts
