On This Sunday Morning

by Indira Babbellapati

from a clear morning sky
a crow swooped down
a lazy packet of biscuits
on the parapet wall
a used tea-cup
all showed that
it’s a sunday morning…

how amusing to see
the way he unwrapped
and made a clean sweep

no sundays for the ever alert crow
my sunday is his day of feast
