I’ve been ruminating about crows–in Shakespeare & the Old Testament, in my back yard & in the liquor cabinet.
“A Contemplation of Crows,” linked here, is my latest publication, appearing in the recently released summer issue of the Mojave River Review. It’s in a pdf file, so please scroll to page 25; while you’re in the journal you may want to take a look at some other southwest-influenced & inspired stories & poetry.

I love it!!!
Just as the intro promised….a fresh voice rich with imagery and energy. And, aas always, I loved it too! (and for the record, I believe :”OLD LETCH…. generally applies in a derogatory sense to some/many old men , none that we know of course 🙂
Wonderful! I particularly loved your respect for and enjoyment of the crows in your canyon. As always I get lost in your vivid imagery.
I guess old folks of both sexes are derided, more’s the pity. I’m thinking of “old Geezer” “old Duffer” “old Git” and in the bird genre “Old Coot”!
