Sunset Hawk

I wonder if you think of me

if you see my face at all

I wonder if I’m on your thoughts


a flash of color at night

I wonder if you hear my name, do you think of my laugh?

I wonder if you’ll miss me soon

if you’ll wonder where I am

I want to know if I’m unjust

if I picked up and moved too fast

I’d ask you what you thought of me

but I don’t think you’d even recall

my feathers on your window

my perch right on your bed

I don’t think you’d even bother to see my jesses still sitting by your door

I wanted you to take me out

Not for you to leave me out.

Hey guys!

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.

If you care about local independent progressive media in an era where multi-millionaires such as John Georges are monopolizing our local press, then please donate any amount you can to make our operation a success. We can do this! Do not give up.

What else can you do if you’ve already donated and can’t donate anymore? Share our content on Facebook and tell people about our fundraising operation. Call and email others who may be able to give. We believe in you because you believe in us and together we can ensure Big Easy Magazine becomes a progressive icon for New Orleans and an inspiration for the expansion of progressive media around the world.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
