[ my crow ]
Changming Yuan

after so many years
the white crow
i had been keeping as a pet
finally flew away
without a single moment
of hesitation
through the back window
blown open
by a gust of wild wind
last night
vanished, into the storm of
black snowflakes
falling down
right from heaven

First appeared in The Linnet’s Wings.
