Rock rasps, what are you?
I am Raven! Of the blue-black jacket and the
Boxer’s swagger, stronger and older than peak
and than boulder, raps Raven in reply.
I am Raven! Prince of Play, King of Guile,
grin-on-face base-jumper, twice as agile as
the wind, thrice as fast as any gale, rasps
Raven in reply.
I am Raven! Solver of problems, picker of
locks, who can always outsmart stoat and
always out-think fox, scoffs Raven in reply.
I am Raven! I have followed men from forest
edge to city scarp: black shadow, dark
familiar, hexes Raven in reply.
Nothing knows what you are.
Not true! For I am Raven, who nothing cannot
know. I steal eggs the better to grow, I eat
eyes the better to see, I pluck wings the
better to fly, riddles Raven in reply.
