Post 269: magic, air, eagles, vultures, lagoons, the PIG

THE PIGGLY WIGGLY and SUPPERTIME

I was biking home from the Pig yesterday
over the Dawhoo lagoons

when the air turned magic
sweeping m
e up

two eagles soaring with red tail hawk
in the milky orange haze of six pm
haunting entrance of three black vultures
their unmistakable massive blackness and choppy wing flying
soaring empty bellies stirred up by wild want and primal need
never a clue in their lives
of my small yearnings
me needing
this rapture as fiercely as their need for food
all these wild creatures
entering through my heart
with electrical currents down through the toes
leaving me dumbfounded and new again
