Telepathic Crow

Telepathic crow
                    on a telegraph pole -
beady-eyed, bread-eyed, the canny bird knows
a thing or two about the woman in the house below,
what comes, what goes – so waits for when she is best
likely to show up with scraps, cheese, crusts, calling 

Crow! Crow! Crow!

Reader of signs, sage survivor, this crow
on a telegraph wire.
