8 of Vultures

A grim sight - vultures impatient for their turn at an egret corpse just off Mary's dock. Because of West Nile Virus we have to notify bird deaths so I did, but they said there was no point in coming out as the vultures would soon be finished, and they were. they hung around for while just to cheer up the landscape, one on top of the mast of the Oscar Romero, one wings outstretched on the mysterious pole twenty feet out in our water. It reminded me of the time when Joe was dying and ravens came to sit in the blasted oak opposite until it was over. Strange landscape this.
