The Storm Crow Calls

By, John W. McEwers

It sounds like rain
big rain
the kind that hurts
if you tip your face back
and catch drops on your tongue, ill advised.

But whether the rain hits hard or you stay inside
it screams thunder, and you must pay
attention enough to hear
the storm crows call,
telling you you aren’t safe
or strong enough
or big enough
or happy enough

but you dont know better
and you believe him when he calls
and the storm crow gets your goat
in his talons.
