TOP TEN CAWS OF THE CROW INSIDE THE WOODS LAST WEEK


#1: ragged crow sees old/masters of carcass picking/peck at dead raccoon
#2: survival requires/nothing more than not dying,/remaining alive
#3: I scatter peanuts/but the crows know I'm a man/with threatening brain
#4: during the days, crows/bask in sunlight, talking shit,/while I work inside
#5: metaphysical/existence best expressed by/cawwing symphony
#6: "burn your bridges, smash/your state, escape to the wild"/their caws say to me
#7: there's no escape from/being humane, from being/civilized, from "mind"
#8: my heart hears the caws/understands what they're saying/but mind overrules
#9: "you don't understand/their language," my mind tells me,/stifling survival
#10: lesson of the crows -/talk mad shit, eat death, survive -/don't let mind block gut
