To the Crows Outside St. Philip Neri Parish

HAPPY NEW YEAR

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

the sign reads in square black letters.

 

How many lonely 

have whispered prove it,

or wondered, at least

who would join them.

 

I want to rest my whole weight

into this brick wall and feel

infinitely stable.

 

Do you ever wish to lie on your back

and spread your wings flat

against the ground?
