hawk chronicles #13…

copyright cwmartin 2011

jagged edges
of expectation
line the shores
of reason
when
you stare
at me
i am
a predefined
vista
one constructed
from old news reels
adventure photos
and
television commercials
capturing none of
who
or
what
i am
you
see a predator
a bird of prey
to be glorified
or hated
depending upon
which child’s fantasy
you can recall
or
which nightmare
brought a cold sweat
before dawn
but
i say to you
you do not
see
me
nor
do you see
yourself

  1. Lately I’ve not been able to indulge my habit of listening to your readings and have only been able to give them a quick read. It’s been bliss this morning and I’ve been here over an hour (two cups of coffee) catching up. Thanks Charlie 🙂

  2. Very intense. my friend– both words and photo. This series is such an interesting sequence, even the title screams “chapbook”! I think you should find a publisher.

  3. KUDO!

    this great!

    i love the “snap” when you put

    “which nightmare
    brought a cold sweat
    before dawn”

    the domino effect people carry, and pass on are crazy
