Murmur of Starlings
By Kellie Rowley and Zeph Daniel
 
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
