Woman With Crows
There is a woman who catches crows on her tongue.
They speak when she is tongue-tied.
In the mornings she advises balloons.
How high it is safe to go, and when to retire from politics.
At night she turns into creek water and sleeps
in a quart berry basket. A crow could carry her.
When she awakens, she unfolds her tail. She sticks out her tongue.
The crows come down in a cloud of balloons.
