Rage, Rage Against the Crow in the Park

yuan changming

Disguised as a pigeon, you’ve just had

Enough food

From my palm

                (& heart); then, you flap high up

Beginning to circle above me, ready

    To flee away only after

Shitting on my head

                                                & heart (again)
