After Losing Her Babies

The electron lept
off the wire onto her beak
and moist pinkish tongue
there to dance a jig
and flash into holy light
all white and blinding.
Raven held on tight
death defying claws and beak
while the particle
storm swamped her bird brain
and ate her whole raven life
leaving bones behind -
and feathers, always
there are black raven feathers
to mark a last day.

  1. Christopher, I have been neglecting your blog. I am sorry. I will try to do better. :)

    1. (0) No worries, lovey. I think you have been busy for sure.
