“Low Circling Bleak Cleaners”


low circles they come

black cleaners at death’s door-stop

  • (Turkey vultures, ubiquitous hereabouts, clean our streets before public services comes by with one driver with four shovels. Ugly of head-and-neck, even more graceful than eagles and hawks and more social, too.  Only crows are more organized. Ravens’ unionized.  Jays just slightly past Mockingbirg anarchists: all keep us cleaner than we deserve.)
