Vulture

A feathered bruise of kinetics,
Neck poised like a one sided war,

Guts of burned hollows,
Wings like tilted cannons.

He has eyes like the tips
Of Amazonian poisoned arrows

And rapacious like the ocean
But drier than its wit,

He is ready to tear and destroy
All the sinewy flesh that he grips.
