Have You Seen My Crow?

He’s missing from my tree

A black crow with iridescent feathers
named Sidney
is missing from my tree
in the backyard

Sidney is a chubby soul
in a corvid body
who likes to stop at 24-hour convenience stores —
check dumpsters for Doritos and Beef Jerky,
and bum cigarettes at the door
