The Double-Bed Dream Gallows

Driving through 
hot brushy country 
the late autumn, 
I saw a hawk 
crucified on a 
barbed-wire fence. 

I guess as a kind 
of advertisement 
to other hawks, 
saying from the pages 
of a leading women?s 

?She?s beautiful, 
but burn all the maps 
to your body. 
I?m not here 
of my own choosing.?
