RambleAmble More Poems Songs Back to Index     

bird in black leather

dropping the moon, she
slums for human companionship
sweeps round a corner
runs down an alley paved with
one-way threats

tunnels of time converge here
her black coat flaps
one eye forever glancing
behind at the immortal darkness
that slips off her shoulder

bird in black leather
she grins and calls, hey cop!
to the beat-up guy
stuck patrolling this reality

lately he's been getting
his pain together,
but this bird he can't resist

hot in pursuit, he asks himself
why?...and when?...he got to thinking
raven thoughts
