for bird of prey

born keen, with a smaller body
than the average boy

who, as an infant, was sick to death
the bridge between sleeping and ceasing,
abstract and fragile

you were formed having touched noses
with this absence, you met like two creatures
stretching their necks to close a split between barbs

you became a peaceful ruler who mused
over complete control and freedom
who described himself as a bird of prey

temper, temper
that warrior against chaos in nature
who defines straight lines
and engineers to indicate confidence

a falcon or an eagle
to fly, to be so precise
apart, and without
real predator
