It’s Not The Raven

Today, on my way to the chiropractor 
And having started out the door with just enough time
Because a package was on the door step 
And I waited to watch the kids open it 

Today, on my way to the chiropractor 
I traveled a shortcut 
The road that winds between the greenhouse 
And the collision repair shop that I watched the Amish workers build last year

Today, on my way to the chiropractor 
I saw twenty or so turkey buzzards 
In the branches of a large brown tree
Over a graveyard 

Today, on my way, a bit late, to the chiropractor 
I stopped to take a crappy cell phone picture
Of the perfect spooky Halloween scene
On a cold, grey Good Friday.
