Insatiable

 

eagle claws
like matches in a tinderbox
struck pyrite
and swallowed it whole
washed it down a long hose
like a gizzard
to endlessly hungry industrial chicks
with gaping mouths
a regurgitated meal
snatched out of the earth
by metal talons
that sparked wild fires from cracked stone
and burned the Native forest down
