‘Street Corner’ By Don Thompson

The hawk hangs loose, insouciant—
The whole sky his street corner.

And yet I’ve seen crows diss him,
Unchallenged—and a mob

Of sparrows, obviously gone mad,
Harass him out of sight.


Don Thompson has been writing about the San Joaquin Valley for over fifty years, including a dozen or so books and chapbooks.  A San Joaquin Almanac won the Eric Hoffer Award for 2021 in the chapbook category. For more info and links to publishers, visit his website: www.don-e-thompson.com.
