Joe Blades & “crow” @ MCAF


Group Poem for a Barry Colpitts Folk Art Crow


Love could be transferred by black crow feet too.
Every morning a crow sings on a tree
Grow give me hope
Sky is unlimited. I’d like to fly as crow
There is something above sky
This is my dream
Owls are traditionally thought to be wise.
Baby, don’t worry, I can feed you now.
Crow—flapping—cawing—mouth & eyes wide
Why is crow looking down instead of looking up: sky is overhead?
An alone crow flies. His tears drop in the sky.
This is a bird who lives everywhere because crows fight
with everything and won for life and this an example for us.
Crow is avarice       I want to sail like crow       I just want to survive myself.
