The Girl with [Al]most Useless Hands by Jeri Theriault

once upon a time
raven-taught to caw
& rasp

I studied
wing-beat   not


gothic scuff
& courted lovely

I learned
what might be done

with smile &
nod.   gaze-grazed
my hawk

clawed his
bone nest
he & I

a mismatch
beauty of lift & grab.
I married

young   [g]owned
[g]reedy & p[r]ettily
