Crows And Ravens

From the window one looks down

at a persimmon tree

A place suited for reading

Melville’s Moby Dick.


These birds are the obvious

beginning and the equally obvious

ending which makes me

wonder what oh what                                                                           

would Hitchcock think

about the thirteen ways

to the precisely right shot

through the slight

rain and heavy mist

of New Haven.
