Where Does the Eagle Stand?

Bit by bit
Clipped, ripped, lopped
One limb,
Then another
And another
And another.

Ten branches
To prune is to shape
New growth
Twenty-seven leaves

X marks the spot
Old Scratch
Insinuating
Subverting
Bending willows
Against the wind

Opposites repel
Hammer forms
Sickle cuts
Devil’s tongue

Slick salesman
Sells lemons
Buys souls
Slick illusion
Grand delusion
Where does the Eagle stand?
