Crows – A Poem

A boy is dead.

A man is accused.

Before the first hearing,

there are condemnations

flying like mosquitos over

a puddle, in the Florida

summer. Same could be said

of reporters, a murder of crows

descending on a desiccated corpse

only to feast, regurgitate, and feast


The gavel is a dinner bell

for all assembled.
