Rob Schackne #716 - Bush stone-curlew

Bush stone-curlew

                       for Jenny Thorley

the weelo
the chicks
to freeze
in long grass
do not move
till we come
back for you
you’re never lost
but wails
and keens
and wanders
the streets
in mourning
for the first man
a scream-fest
a full moon
eclipse tonight
not carpe diem
or harbinger of death
(couldn’t care less)
but are dead
and wish to be alive
