Murmur of Starlings
By Kellie Rowley

A murmur of starlings passed 
for three days overhead
their shadows a flicker 
in the vertical sun
and all my futures I dread

Like the omen of a lovers overt gaze
suddenly I feel the need for warmth 
before they pull away

Pining for a lost world 
is not an option
exercising your free will here 
might get you killed

And the starlings are squawking, 
stealing everything in the woods
and the songbirds are quietly singing
There goes the neighborhood

There goes the neighborhood
There goes the neighborhood
There goes the neighborhood
There goes the neighborhood

Oh oh
A murmur of starlings passed 
for three days overhead
