Crow Song (2005)

(with a distant wave to Aristophanes)

Crow in the palm,
What is your psalm?

Caw! Caw! Caw!
To God I do not belong!

Crow in the evergreen,
What do you mean?

Caw! Caw! Caw!
I’m really here,
I’m really seen.

Crow in the day,
What do you pray?

Caw! Caw! Caw!
Get off my back,
I am okay!

Crow in the night,
Where do you ‘light?

Caw! Caw! caw!
Up in the palm
To sing my song.

Caw! Caw! Caw!
