December Crows

World awash in gray, and the first flakes of the year. The crows return to roost, arriving sometime in November after the wind has scoured the leaves off the trees. We circle the block, watching the river of black birds fly in for the night. Light fades earlier and earlier as we creep toward the solstice. Night has arrived. The crows cry.
