12.03.22: Too Early

The Crow That Arrived Too Early

The morning is icy,
the bird bath is frozen,
and the house stares out
on a silvery fog, and there’s

a crow is on the lawn.
An onyx star. A bull’s eye.
A caw . . . a caw.
Stab with your incantations,

hollow out a moon’s feast.
I heard a crow laughing,
and the world
turned upside down.
