Fun, seasonal poem from Apex mag:

The Crows and the Witches and the Window

by Rachel Swirsky

I’m probably going to die

at midnight.

Don’t worry—

I’ll set the timer on the coffee pot

before I go.

The crows will be up with me

and the witches.

I’ll watch them through the window

and they’ll watch me back.

I’ll crack the window

so I can smell

stew simmering in cauldrons.

I’ll give some thought

to how it might taste—

boiled lizard eyes

& toad brains

& fingernails of newt.
