Horus!


A raptor on the sidewalk wounded

opens his beak with no cry,

his two brave eyes disks of light.


1

Andromeda is a hawk's eye

In the firmament.

Binocular!


2

The zenith of truth falcons fly

Though one is maimed below

I witness.


3

Anointed by a bike crash,

My head by helmet saved,

Horus the executor this hawk

I so bereave.


4

Signal to me hawk.

Make my being spectacular

As your flight is.


5

Soar for the zenith

Once more my hawk.

You shall fly through me.


6

Horus, disk-eyed, deliver

This. Help me wing

Your vision over men.
