Corvid

 

Black silk,

gliding night sky.

Eye for what shines,

high winter light.

Soul carrier

Carrion eater.

Long for the world

of a single lover.

 

Call.

Click.

Mimic the tongue.

Speak words

and ferret out their secrets.

What fires

beheld by such

ancient spirits,

call this world home

in form alone.

 

Soar

in the eldritch spaces.

Covet the glint

of gold and silver,

alone and in murder.

Emissary come

from the other side.

Speak of day

and night

and the stars’ transition.

 

Omen warning

and fair champion.

Curse of kings

and savior of nations.

Rest upon the world,

unassuming creature.

Fly with mystery

through the spaces of time.
