Week 12 – The Collector

The Collector

I wanted to catch a magpie
yet she
eluded me

I wanted to catch a magpie
but she stayed
just out of reach

She hopped quite close
her head on one side
and regarded me
with obsidian eyes

I tried to win her
with a fast embrace
but she only screeched
and flew away

I wanted to catch a magpie
You ask me why?

It’s because her eyes
were so shiny
I wanted to keep them forever.
