Crow finds itself in love and loss, in death and rebirth, and most of all in flight. The poems of the manuscript screech volumes without needing the elaborate ululations other songbirds might provide; the black, sparse simplicity of the crow allows the relatable, universal imagery of these poems to shine as the narrator writes through pain, loves through hardship and doubt, lives for her family, and moves on for herself. A reader may find themselves digging deeper and deeper, hoarding eye-catching metaphors and running into themselves in the crow’s mirror.
