The Wind, Page 2

I remember I was walking past the library when that woman said this to me. I think she was a hospital worker on break.

It was a very windy spring. It was battering the local bird population. For the past week, I’d find smashed eggs and dead nestlings all over the sidewalks. It felt like the wind was trying to pull all the babies out of their homes and throw them on the ground. I was very tired of the wind.
