The Bird World

 

Two men

in a chilly apartment

converse

in whispers.

 

Little do

they know,

the raven

outside

their window

 

is not merely

a city scavenger,

but a spy,

kind of Jason Bourne.

 

Pigeons aren't

that clever.

Owls are not

very smart either.

 

They may be wise,

but they aren't

particularly smart.

 

Yes, it's possible

there are still

rogue ravens

 

flittering around

Eastern Europe

 

waiting to be

activated.
