Tim Burton Made Me Do It

“Why is a raven like a writing desk?”

—quote from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”

Its hinge opens
and shuts
with a song

into its nest
useless, shiny objects

unfolding wing
carries its news
far beyond the wood

which arrives
at my mailbox
an unexpected surprise

    Wow very fun poem and quite true. It reminds me of the roll-top desk that my grandfather used to have. His children sold it. I wanted it, of course. 😉
