wide wings cover the sun

red eyes peer down

over the human landscape

without mercy

without any particular violence

as if power assured

this apparition could afford

its diffidence

as it scoped out its next intended


a useless sacrifice in the growing shadow

swallowing all the ground under its advance

unstoppable as any sunset or moonrise

wide wings folding in the night
