Red and Black
by John Flanagan

Never in dreams but from my window
in the morning I see them, crows
among a rage of poppies on wasteland,
black and red appearances
easily outdoing dull plastic, dead animals,
spent drinks cartons and cosmetic casings,
cinders in a bonfire
that flamed while I was asleep.

I’ve no charcoal to draw them,
only a mind to pull them close,
and when they’re in focus
I see black hags picking the seeds
one by one and spitting them out.

Then they have another vision of the sky,
those eyes, from flat on their backs,
emptiness above and alone
and no blanket for comfort.
The hags hop and haggle over the takings,
mooning the carnage, ladying over it.

When the crows grow bored
and fly off to richer landings
the poppies grow their eyes back
before mine and stand up straight
and wave red flags,
trumpeting their blood to the sun.
