Woman and Crow – by Julieta Corpus

 

Kiss, kiss me gently
Said the Crow
To the melancholic woman
Caressing its feathers.
Kiss, kiss me sweetly
Said the Crow
As her soft lips grazed
Its lowered head.
Kiss, kiss me, for I am yours.
Kiss, kiss me, for I am yours.
Kiss, kiss me into immortality
Said the Crow
And the woman’s slender fingers
Slowly tightened around its neck.

 

 

 

Julieta Corpus became infatuated with the printed word at an early age, devouring everything from Donald Duck comics to graphically violent news-magazines like Alarma! She arrived in the Rio Grande Valley from Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas in 1978. She has been published in various anthologies.
