the songs of the hawks

the clan's totems
have been stolen -
between the awakening white teeth
of the twilight stars
they came
their blood-sucking beaks & talons
hidden under the soft feathers
they came 
singing the sonorous songs
like the weaver-birds of the clan -
the songs of the hawks
lured the eagle & her eaglets
into a new dance of the forest -
& the clan's totems
have been stolen
