Eating Crow


first catch your crow
pickled salt flung from a
size nine catapult

pick, gut and clean
decapitation is optional

baste with fresh butter
and crumbs from a loaf
of wholemeal bread

roast on a anthracite fire
but only in November

when cooked
serve on a bed
of aubergines and salad

eat your lover's crow
until the earth moves

if she does not come
throw the roasted bird
to the dogs

the cat will lick butter
