NaPoWriMo2021 Day 22

Safe by Mimi DiFrancesca

Untitled #22 by Larry Mawby

what does the iron crow,

who perches on the iron branch

in the young maple tree

outside my window, live on?

i feet him fragments

of my night dreams

each morning, which i believe

are sustaining for iron crows.

he may scavenge day dreams

from others, but i avoid

feeding him mine. he seems

happy with my night dreams.

rainwater is all he drinks

[except for snow in the winter].

he seems healthy enough, & very

quiet. he never caws, unlike other crows.

he never flies, either, staying

perched there on the iron branch

all the time. that is the nature

of iron crows,

i am told.
