blue hawk


Stream and hill follow my contours. This beak is a high jut of rock.
I command the veer of rivers.
My black wing tips
are the storm’s edges.
My gyre makes the gust.

My white feathers, clouds.
Rain is the pelt of water
off my pinions and claws.
One of my eyes is the sun.
The other eye is the moon.

Gravity is my fall.
Death,my talons.
I deprive young
of their Mam and Dad.

The unwary, unwatchful,
unaware and weak
are morsels for my young
that turn in the world of my eye.


I  pass

.     the dead
to my wife
.     in


.     Two rocks

.            bridged

.         by red sinew.
