Evening Slant

Blacker mask jackdaw

on the station bridge

eyes me close

tilt head and still

hops one eighty

eyes me with the other

approval of velvet

and fake Whitby bead

barely a flight

to the rail

showing tail

I give no threat

only compliment

plume and stance

loud enough to make

a passer look

he makes for greater backdrop

the sky

crest of a roof

eternal

day heavy travellers rush

birds rule
