of the currawong

currawong call 2

I tried to take
a picture
of a currawong call

I heard it
clear
in the morning

it wasn’t there
when I aimed
my phone

but I heard it call
again
behind my shoulder

wheeled around
aimed up
to catch the sound

currawong call

it wasn’t there

just a line
creasing across the sky

marking the blue

nothing
to show
so I had to tell
about the currawong

to you
