"The Crow" by Oreon Trickey

Familiar in the alley
the sunrise sound of the crow

Wheels
clicking then pausing
to investigate a dumpster
aluminum
copper
whatever will bring a few cents
at
the recycling station
past the viaduct

Harmless intruder
pecking at potential income
feasting on cast offs
a meal
or
a drink
or
a fix

The crow lives day to day

A solitary scavenger
irritating to some
feared by others
ever present
more often than not
merely blending into the urban landscape

Soaring slowly
in search of survival

His shopping cart nest
hoards momentary security.
