Raven in black dress
picks up spilled french fries on Thursday
half a sandwich that missed the bin on Friday

a red scarf would be striking around her neck
any color really
but she’s come to terms
with this scavenge
for food in the same dress
without scarf

and the two-footed
hops of hope
she can’t contain
