Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to grow...


Steve Klepetar

Crow on Barbed Wire

  Majdanek Concentration Camp
  near Lublin, Poland

Silhouette against horizon’s
gray wash, black shape before
a ragged line of leafless trees –

see its head and wings, follow
with your eyes the sharp spike
of beak, forked tail, round belly

and little sticks of leg and claw.
Think of Raven before the world
began, and how he flew through

a hole in the sky. Still air and
empty fields, silence heavy as
the weight and roar of shifting earth.
