crow morphology

On New Year’s Day, crow became a parrot.

I asked him how he did this.  Here is our conversation:

Calling card--crow


disregard the moon and all arrangements of stars.

if stones stand be sure light nowhere specially shines.

do not go to the great tree in the forest, the one that is itself and all its ancestors.

slaughter nothing.

light no fire.

scatter no grain.

spill no milk no honey no blood.

do not mark yourself with stakes or nails or knives or thorns, the bones of dead creatures or the inks of poisonous flowers.


know who you are and choose

to behave differently.

i went to sleep on my usual branch.

it doesn’t matter what i dreamed.  the dream was of myself.


when i awoke, i cracked one eye like crow.  then i opened both eyes like parrot.  i flashed my wings like parrot.   i did not caw i squawked.

what is the difference between parrot and crow?

what do you know?  i choose how i act.

pretty parrot pirate ship.  squawking word mirror.

what do you know?  i know crow

stole you something shiny to rob you of your lustre.

is that a mirror?

where    where    going

you          are         you

are          you         are

going                     go
