Mimicker birds

To neuter their flight
pay in birch seeds or throw them
into water then they flap
in an orgy of contentment dying.
Walnuts grow better brains though
their fat crowds them so,
like any old crow who shoved his head
into glass, would shatter in search
of mere bread headed to New England
as the rest of us land,
old fortunate few too cold to rest
or from bad weather seek remand.
