Mage’s Orders of a Night

One full moon unheralded
A crow arrived carrying
The malicious royal mage’s
Unpublicized views
In one claw
A cease and desist order
In the other
An extensive purge list
But was the recipient
The intended persona?

Mage’s Orders of a Knight

One full moon unheralded
A crow arrived carrying
The malicious royal mage’s
Unpublicized views
In one claw
A cease and desist order
In the other
An extensive purge list
But was the recipient
The intended persona?

raven

time to crow

time to crow from the roof

the treetops

the internet

the underground

crow the black letters

deep

crow the dark feathers

the eyes

the feasting on carrion

crow the talons

and the flapping flight

flop

cruise

cruise the sky

packish birds

brook no interference

neither from hawks, cats, or sparrows

fly to the sun

the moon

the infinite empty
