Five Poems by Deborah Flanagan

Going to Hell | A Sixpence Song | How the Man is Knit
Unauthorized Autobiography | Floating Island Custard
One is for bad news: I dream that men are birds and they have something to tell me
Two is for mirth: wake to find a huge crow, pacing to and fro
Three is a wedding: drink wine in which a blackbird drowned
Four for a birth: I bake a pie full of twenty-four naughty boys
Five is for riches: serve it to the queen in the parlor with bread and honey
Six is a thief: a bird with one wing steals my nose
Seven a journey: I visit the doctor; he sews it back on
Eight is for grief: the birds refuse to fly out of the pie
Nine is a secret: why a raven is like a writing desk
Ten is for sorrow: my heart in a baby birdcage
Eleven is love: nevermore
Twelve is joy on the morrow: I open my mouth; a bird flies out
