in the borderlands

©2022 Michael Raven

ravens
always ravens
loud, boisterous beasts
exploding skyward
forest demarcation
for here be monsters
and wild things
that we hide
deep inside

skull and antler piercing
death things whispering
decayed leaves twirling
winds o'wisp whirling

feasting
our deadwood core
fungus thriving
you smell rank with fear
while i am perfumed in rot
come with me
come with me
let us burst forth
take wing
and
fly
