…eagles and I

eagle-wingsThey will glide around the world and eventually

all die, it’s only a matter of the eagles and what I am

and also you are.

 

Time and I will still be here, along with you.

The other angels watching whoever comes next

will admire how well we fly

in the wasteland they leave behind.

 

And eventually I will succumb but before

I will stand, my fierce eyes steelier than yours and theirs,

leaving heaven and flying silent forever, watching the world

crawl with the eagles who

bellow, un-winged, as I, you, wait for

the end.
