Are two crows meant to be together,
as they wheel across the sky,

Tracing the same loop-de-loop,
up, down, and around—
the leader seeming to beckon,
seeming to say,
Come, come away with me
and we shall married be?

Is this crow the only crow
for that?

Some people say
that everything
happens for a reason.

I say

why invoke the rational
to validate the divine?

I say

that the crow follows
not another crow
but an ancient internal command
to do what crows do.

I say

that geese don’t honk
because they love Jesus
but because they are geese.

Miracle enough.
