When We Gather Together

The crows are at it again.

A murder screaming in the treetops

pulls the whole neighborhood into their business

as they rage after a remorseful kestrel

for whom no sanctuary is coming.

And all I can think is

what power in numbers,

what freedom and ferocity

in banding together to take back the skies.
