Flights Beyond

for Sarah Kathryn Moore

1.
 
 
World falls, fully fledged
against us

feathers of its ruffing
riffling off

themselves

sound

as soon fossil
as it fills the ear

eaves-dropping

passing by


2.

Crows, we’ve learned
can ID us
by our faces

though no human
can spot a crow
amidst its murder;

don a mask, even
upside-down—

the crow will fly
claws to sky
to read you
 
 

3.

Unintending I’ve
opened the door for
a butterfly
