The crucial part is

when the wing is shot off the bird


and the cop drops his handcuffs

on the sidewalk


says he is looking for his son

in the mock orange hedges


only to find a man that looks

like his father


fifty, overweight, three puncture

wounds to the chest:


it looks like a snake got here first

feathers, residue.
