“ravens & birches”

down in the depths of the hollow

there awaits a dubious hue.

there hides a peculiar undertone

down where the odd ones brew.


suddenly calls a blackbird

from somewhere within its chest.

from out of nowhere it beckons,

suddenly arrive the rest.


once assembled they clamor

their delightfully evil yell.

their harmonies rekindle what

once had the steeple bell.


vacantly they holler though

they all seem so aware.

they never seemed so eerie,

vacantly they stare.


white was once all over,

black is now the brighter.

black wings cover branches,

white no longer the lighter.


overwhelm the fiends their haven

and whisper like empty churches.

and so the devious ravens

overwhelm the once white birches.
