The Serpent & The Crow

We talk in silent circles
as the weariness sets in
and all the wonder
shared in secret
vanishes in the crowd.

We walk with kings
who make commandments
under which, we abide.
But away from law,
out of sight of governance,
there is nothing for us to hide.

How should the crow,
who knows all secrets,
fly when his wings are bedded down?

How should the serpent
crawl upon the earth
if its belly never touches the ground?
