Hanging Crows From The Wall

watch the crows
sweet suzy
watch

now tell me
what you see
watch them fly
or flee, maybe
do you think
they’re free?

is it will
that steers their flight
or higher power
who will know

watch the crows
sweet suzy
take your aim

calm your breathing
heartbeat
slow

bring their bodies
back to me
bloody
mangled by the fall
see dead beads
stare back at us
when we hang them
from the wall

watch the crows
sweet suzy
watch

the ones you thought
roamed free
death and blood
and cold and dull
killed by powers
they did not see
