The branches of your backyard's one tree
- which you never found time to identify,
or to identify with - spread menacingly,
making room. And you looked up
The crows came,
again. Or else - the ravens
You can tell by the shape
of the tail, but you don't care.
You know it is an omen.
But it is an auspicious one.
It augers, well, pretty good.
That's your story, all packed up
and ready to sell
