BTW: The winner of The Poetry Lottery #2 was Gwendolyn Fleischer! Here is her poem...
Before Cell Phones
We stopped at a red phone kiosk
beside a high stone wall
surrounding a fire station
outside of Dublin
I exited the black rental car
a murder of crows flew down
or maybe it was an unkindness of ravens
hovering just above me
sharp beaks flashing menacingly
sizeable wings beating in the summer air
I phoned the B&B for directions
the black birds cawed and kra'acked
wings swooshed just above the kiosk
they stayed with me as I swiftly got back in the car
where my new husband was
safe inside for the birds' sorcery
