Hawk Hunting

Hawk perched high,
hunting,
surveying his kingdom
casual as any monarch.
Evil splits the land.
They poisoned the pool,
lay insecticide beside it.
The dragonflies were dead.                                                                                                                                                              They called us
insubordinate,
unruly,
but we fought for truth
and burned in fire.

hell and God’s right hand

“I am traveling

through the fires of hell

to God’s right hand,”

said Dan.

I knew little of his journey, but

one time he told me,

“Dad would

knock us upside the head,

beat the shit out of us.”

Then Dan joined the army.

I do not know more of his passage,

how Charon ferried him across

and how he bribed his way out

pass Cerebus’ three heads.

But

here and now,

we are

in this church of light,

learning to sit

and stand

and move in space,

learning to hear

and see

and touch

all over

again.
