She bends
the raven’s wing
then nails him
to a weathered post
artist working in bronze

  on my wall
an old Japanese scroll
delicate white cranes
lift into a luminous sky
in me, the beating of their wings

    great crane
at the land's end,
is it time?
there are no answers
to any of my questions

all the times
I called you when I thought
I was dying
& you came, you always came…
today I heard you had died

  49 days after
the placing of the bones…
in the crow’s caws
my own
wild keening
