Eagle Eyes


eagle-eye

 

Omniscient eyes like those of eagles

judging glances and backward stares

mirroring like eagles would in the air

energetic and serene quickness, alacrity

with intelligence, hubris and humility,

modesty in the multicolored feathers soaring

like airplanes at night, under the cover of

Dusk and the darkness associated with it.

 

Words flung across sidewalks to loiterers

Relaxing with their backs arched sideways

in lazy poses mimicking each other

praising the gods of technology and machinery

for their kindness and grace for granting the

undeserving the power of omniscience,

the eyes of an eagle, controlling the natural

like a tailor to a spool of cloth.
