Vantage — A Poem

“Wire” — C.Birde, 3/19

 

Perched

on the wire –

like any dove

or sparrow;

hooked talons

grip,

the line

dips

taut beneath

three pounds

of hollow bones

and feathers.

Alert.

Blunt head hunched

between

folded wing blades.

Yellow gaze

fixates

upon the open field

of fallow meadow

grasses.

Red-tail scans

for any dove

or sparrow’s

passage.

 

— C.Birde, 3/19
