Wrathful Black Hawks

Wrathful black hovering hawks
chopping the air
in an afternoon haze

Wrathful black hawks
shadow boys playing
Exploring a rustic
lifeless car shell

bright bolts flashin'
raeburns glinting
sounds of earnest radio instruction

Wrathful black hawks
smelling no prey
whir off in sync
down the sun-baked highway
