Anomalies A – Z: The Hawk

The following you shall abominate among the birds – they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination:  the Eagle, the Vulture, the Black-Vulture, the Kite and… every kind of Hawk. Leviticus 11: 13 - 16

A cast of circling malevolence
wheeling across the sky,
hawks of every variety

the Falcon, the Kestrel,
the Hobby, the Harrier,
flat headed, hook beaked royalty

with an eye upon the sparrow,
an eye upon the hare,
his talon snares all he does behold.

The One who is Above screeches
long and loud as he hunts;
the Distant One spreads his wings for the south.
