Sighting

I got a gift today

Something miraculous
Although a spirit died
Life gone, a price paid in beauty

focused yellow eyes
Didn’t see me watching  
his swoop until talons sank deep into flesh

juvenile studied me
over his shoulder as
he squeezed the last breath out of his prey

collected his winnings
lifted to his perch
and dined on his suburban feast
