a crackle of cockatoos
& deafening smoke
feathers take on the gore
flint sharp, the white-hooked scream

Written for Sarah’s dVerse poetics. “the 4 elements”

    1. Thanks. This one wrote itself. I have no idea where any of it came from except the first line which was inspired by a book of “101 Collective Nouns” that my son was reading. I think it was actually a cackle of cockatoos but crackle sprang onto the page.
