Nest Of The Swan's Bones

She will build a nest of the swan's bones...
- Robinson Jeffers, 'Shiva'


High in the blue air above the dumpster in the back lane,
between the mountains and the tidal flats,
on the thermals and updrafts a summer hawk does slow turns.

The crows pick at the waste on the asphalt.
