Usually when you offer something (jewelry, property, etc) up for collateral, it is in "hawk". Possessor can be a bank, a pawn shop, an impound lot, etc; but is usually limited to legal matters.

You can get the item "out of hawk" by paying the money back, or filling the contract out.

a term commonly used in chicago, gary, and other great lakes cities to refer to the bitterly cold winter winds. the term has three widely accepted origins, with acceptance depending on the local group. 1. the term is derived as a result of similarities between the sound of the screeching winds and wailing screams of the many raptors (ie. hawks) in the region 2. the bitter winds are attributed to chest colds, causing one to "hawk" phlegm during the winter 3. is an abbreviation for "howling-ass wind kills" because of the many homeless people that succumb during the winter
