Lady Hawk



Lady Hawk

Supplication for Transmutation to become a cebolla, a desert bloom, anything to subsist this solar plexus of self-blame...can't exist anymore as human woman anymore...cannot breathe stifling unsure...better to to be a Hawk, a predator than be predated upon.

Soaring down, screeching to collect my rations of Scorpions and Snakes easier to ingest than narrow-minded hypocrite judgements, my inhuman voice now intractable to avoid counterfeit extrapolations, I Despise Lies, Go tell your Envoys and Spies, Must take to the skies, cannot acquiesce or remit to Smarmy, pseudo-concerned judgements of Sanity Cease your Block on my Destiny's Sky, I Will Swoop Down and Cause Calamity, Beware the Sharpness...these are newly born talons.


This poem was first published in Down in the Direct Magazine.
