Yesterday, one black bird feather
Landed at my feet
In the busy doorway of the grocery store.
Were you on your way in
Or out?
Did you leave the feather
As a message?
If so, I must tell you,
The message is unclear
And you should send more details.
As it is, the message could mean
Or Welcome
Or I’m Watching out for you
Or Buy more Birdseed
Or Buy More Cat Food
Because none of us want him hungry.
