    Burn down my hills
    I am not black but white
    I am a bad habit

    kicked from a listening blue
    there is a sky on my back
    the grief of an old poem

    I have displaced my crackle
    this crow I wear inconsistently
    manages the rain

    wet falls only on his wings
    the world is tired of such birds
    as this - that cannot fly

    thank you

    I enjoy reading here.
    the voices are so many and so varied
    there is a lot of light and unfolding in the lines
    concrete honest feelings

    thanks again for taking time to read this poem
    and for the bump too

    I look forward to posting more
    and commenting more too.

    thank you

    you are all so very kind to comment on my poem
    and for the invite into voice chat

    I have never done voice chat online or anywhere in fact

    but one day maybe I will feel brave enough to stop in.
