I finally caught this great, respected Chicken Hawk!
Symbolism: Chicken Hawk to Granny Cain
Symbolism: Goldilocks to the Cameraman and Smilin
Okay, and let's not ask them, let's just do it.
Let's sneak on to these people's yard and take videos of their lives for the media.
"Cathy say it's just because he's so tall and quiet and like a king. And people just can't stand it... He passes the porch and stops a second for Granny to see he's caught the hawk at last" (Bambara 4,5).
"'Your mama and I are not related'... And the bird flappin himself to death and droolin down the door to paint the gravel in the driveway red, then brown, then black" (Bambara 2,5).
"'Listen,; he said movin back into our yard, "we'd like to have a statement from you... for the film'... 'About this lady Goldilocks who barged into a house that wasn't even hers. And not invited, you understand'" (Bambara 2,4).
