Pair of Morning Crows on a Lawn After the Rains

Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Peckish down deep in twin gesture,
this pair of morning crows on a lawn after the rains;
obvious mates, that familiar shared gait
as if talking over the old times,
but what hunger has ousted from the moment is frivolous nostalgia –
worms flooded out of earth, what a treat!
This plodding onyx alliance, never more than a few feet apart,
seemingly working as a team in all endeavours:
so this is what they have meant each time
impenetrable castle hugs trusted moat.
