  1. Are the buzzards speaking in this poem?

  2. No it's basically about a man who is speaking who's brother is dying. So the dying brother sees his mother and brother as buzzards.

  4. No just his mother his brother
    who could do nothing for him
    when he sat with the living
    and can do nothing now
    as he crawls toward death

    That's the rest of the poem

  5. You'd have to consider the WHOLE poem, not just a few lines in it.

    It's not written in slang.
