LIFE FROM DEATH

for Jeremy

1

The darkened eagle's iris
pitched into the blue of the sky
scanning the thriving peripheries below
Reflected off the ebon shield
of its unyielding stare
the great, wild world curved
below its hooked talons


2

Gnarled and blackened oaks bulged
with tumorous, distended trunks
sunk softly sucking slowly up
the sweet spoiled meats
decomposing in the graveyard


3

In this hungry dominion
the desert hare is spared
from the red-tailed hawk 
the hunter's gun has felled
