~after Yeats’ “Second Coming”

A hawk gyres over blueberry barrens atop Beech Hill,
turning and turning,
casting quick shadows across frost-hard ground.

A hundred years and the center still doesn’t hold.
A president who will not own defeat
unleashes the anarchy of his blood-dimmed mob.

They storm the Capitol in animal pelts and helmets
with horns, use flags as weapons,
chant feral taunts, glory in carnage.

On Beech Hill, talons swoop to a bare branch
clutching a small rodent.
The red-tailed hawk turns one indignant eye.
