Sandy sent this piece ofÂ Ted Hughes’Â work as a comment. I thought it was fabulous, so here it is as a post too. Thanks for sending it Sandy.
â€˜Well,â€™ said Crow, â€˜What first?â€™
God, exhausted with Creation, snored.
â€˜Which way?â€™ said Crow,â€™Which way first?â€™
Godâ€™s shoulder was the mountain on which Crow sat.
â€˜Come,â€™ said Crow, â€˜Letâ€™s discuss the situation.â€™
God lay, agape, a great carcass.
Crow tore off a mouthful and swallowed.
â€˜Will this cipher divulge itself to digestion
Under hearing beyond undestanding?â€™
(That was the first jest.)
Yet, itâ€™s true, he suddenly felt much stronger.
Crow, the heirophant, humped, impenetrable.
