Walking with my Son by Lola Haskins (Pocket Poem)

Walking with my Son by Lola Haskins


hundreds of vultures


the humming air


to settle

like black flowers

in certain oaks


and now    as dusk

deepens   they unfold

their wings


and in a flash of




oh my boy

i wish you had

not already lived


half your life


(from her new book ‘How Small Confronting Morning’, available for purchase here)
