Strong Claws

STRONG CLAWS

A red-hawk accompanies my dove:

I need its fierce instinct...

but when that destroyer
attempts to dominate
I'm spun in
the swirling wind
of their wrestling

and struck by lightning
if the red-hawk wins--

every day, I endure storm

but as the gentle dove
fights for control
its claws become strong

and all doves need strong claws.
