coup de grâce


winter’s sun
continues to run
weakening minute
by minute, overtaken
by myriad light eaters
on heels
Seasonal birds
of prey ferociously
cracking benevolent egg
yolk sun’s shell to pieces
leaking its warmth as crows
cherry picking shiny pieces
blustery gale force
winds offer neither leeway
nor breathers, bloodthirstily
joining forces bludgeon cornered
sun shattering in single fell
swoop coup de grâce
palms cupping
hot beverages
we pray for return
of our lion maned sun
