Poetry art: original poem on found image "woman reading"


Kay Ryan (1945-) Paired Things. Who, who had only seen wings,/ could extrapolate the/ skinny sticks of things/ birds use for land,/ the backward way they bend,/ the silly way they stand?/ And who, only studying/ birdtracks in the sand,/ could think those little forks/ had decamped on the wind?/ So many paired things seem odd./ Who ever would have dreamed/ the broad winged raven of despair/ would quit the air and go/ bandylegged upon the ground,/ a common crow?
