Driving South

after my war ended, back in Oregon
one afternoon 
a crow appeared, midnight black 
iridescent purple and green 
in slanted sunlight,

flying from the south, 
with tales of magic, animal spirits
sorcerer, witches,
beady eyes staring, peering
summoning me to Imruis

plans made, maps read,
visit Powell’s collecting Carlos tales,
and others
     The life of mushrooms
     Cactus flowers

images of driving south 
24 hours to San Diego
turn left to Arizona
right at Tucson
breakfast in Mexico
