Corvus Frugilegus

She perches
on the narrow span
over the abyss.
Knows and loves Truth,
and her feet trust it.

Sometimes
she Googles her name
so to know her name right.

Most of the time
she goes with the street
vernacular.
And walks straight
without fear.

She remains who she is.
A rook,
by any other name.

She has wings.
