Judgmentals malign sister crow
with whispered gossip
jealous perked in spoiled tea.
She ignores their babble
polluting the wind, and gathers
silhouettes to wallpaper memory.
Spoiled tongues scar faces.
The eye of I is an open window
where what is spoken is always seen.
Beware when attacking a sister,
words carried on feathers
may return in a murder of wings.
