This is not about mourning…

This is not about mourning.
There are crows on the snowy roof across the street.
My cat watches avidly.

(2011)

I love corvids; they turn up fairly often in my work. Whatever their cultural associations with death, they make me happy and I wanted to play with that contrast a little.
