mrs. jones and the raven
by tobias crabtree
the raven is a song bird.
i heard someone say, sarcastically, “what kind of song does a raven sing?”
and to myself i thought, my kind.
the raven doesn’t worry about judgements concerning the quality of it’s croaking song.
painters are singers, the sounds and melodies are hues and contrasts.
i have had people tell me they couldn’t draw a stick figure,
but that is never true.
stick figures are great and need to be drawn.
mrs. jones paints the stones and you should hear them sing.
