Milton Road Poem

attention drifts to a barren tree
...that's a big bird
an owl, a hawk, a  raven?


the head is blended invisible
into the grey November sky

a bald eagle
scanning for rabbits
along the cold creek banks

the season

macabre pumpkins melt
rotten orange goo 
between deck cracks

snow skiffs swirl
blowing a pinless poppy
into the ditch

newly unboxed lights
LED brightness beams
sparkle over new snow
