Lady Falcon by Sherry Hurwitz


I see you 

Lady Falcon 

The flash of your brown and white wings 

spread to fill my windshield. 

You have calculated my speed around this curve and are inches from my wonder and fear, 

while you land, feet away, grasping a breakfast 

your talons have crushed.

Its spark has gone in the instant you turn to glare at me 

in triumph and in warning.
