The Crowstream

Pouring along in their thousands,
at many times the pace of the rush-hour traffic
tailing back from temporary lights,

the crows against the blush December sky
caw east above the Roman road
– the Via Trinobantes –

from the heath to the riverside,
like a streamer flailing from a wedding-car
in the slipstream of a single-decker bus.
