nothing at all

©2022 Michael Raven

i know nothing
nothing at all
i only parrot
the wind and
ape stone
my head is
full of ash
(take that
as you will)
i cannot hold back
crowing at the

slipping through
thorny underbrush
hounds on my tail
i become a hart
bounding down
the trail

don't follow me
don't follow me
don't look to where i run
