Scarcity

October 14, 2007
By Aaron Elliott, Baldwin City, KS

Scarcity is a crow.
With echoing cries
and searching eyes

Black wings beat
sending gusts
of stale air
everywhere

In a tree
without its leaves,
In a barren desert
a single drop
of sacred water

Scarcity is a crow.
With a dying cry
and a stiff body.
