"Consider Him Well"



about cruelty and sadism

A neat disjointing:


Frost pricked by heat

melts; the rut of stone

jags at the eye no more.


A universal harmony

creates unnumbered stems:

the earth was never virgin.


Condoning the green

mutability of things, he corners

baby pheasants (cock and hen calloohing in the scrub),

twists at the neck. Their eyes

pop with surprise. The good earth

will maintain this spawn gone wrong two ways.


He does not hear the clapping wings,

the hawk big with the misery of things.
