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
