HAWK IN THE SNOW by Lyle Weis
I came down from the hills
a dark figure growing larger
whipping snow wands with my skis
Came to rest on the trail
where he stood
head smeared with blood:
a hawk perched on the shredded chest
of a pheasant only moments dead
Clicking on bone
scream rose above
His deep globe of eye
neck-snapping collision in midair
No use to twist away
Everything around me
Snow sky hills shadows and light –
was pulled rushing and roaring
into the vortex
of his eye
I stood hovering
he moved slightly
the mess under his claws:
it was his and I …
I turned on thin slivers of wood
slipped down the trail
a slim figure retreating
from that eye
