Ken McCullough, Left Hand


What I found startled me to the point that I almost dropped it. It was a perfectly round stone, tannish in color, a little larger than a baseball, and glued to it were two severed eagle claws, as if they were grasping the stone. Why would they leave something like this? The day had been still except for the drumming and singing at the arbor but now the wind was rising.
