The Clever Crow

The clever crow
places her meal
on top of the utility
pole at the end
of the driveway.

The dead bird flops
awkwardly on its
round, wooden plate.
The crow comes
and goes, returning
as to a buffet, pulling
off the tastiest morsels.

Standing in the windows
we watch, bug-eyed
with binoculars, repulsed
and filled with admiration –
oh, that clever crow!
