THE COMPANY OF CROWS

(excerpt)

The Father

Crows like company.
Family breakfasts
     on hot summer mornings,
Neighborly roosting
     on cold winter nights.
Sometimes it is fine to be
     just one
To sail a sweet breeze
To walk a frozen pond
To wander on your own from town to country
     and back again.
But always we return to flocks,
     feasts, and complications.
Leave solitude to woodpeckers,
     hummingbirds, phoebes,
     evil owls, hateful hawks.
We are crows.
And crows like company.
