A murder of silhouettes

I feel it is necessary to explain the title of this collection, taken from a song by Tom Waits: Alice.
As a group of chickens is called a peep, a group of ducks a paddling,  a convocation of eagles, a murmuration of starlings,  a wisdom of owls, a group of crows is called a murder of crows.
My title, therefore, refers to a group of dark shadows: a murder of silhouettes.
