THE HAWK WEST DESK WINDOW 1:11pm

My Big Black Super Cat Astro

is sprung from My Right Shoulder

like The Head of The Beautiful Dark Haired Woman

Who told Me nineteen years ago Today

in The Most Melodious Voice

I had ever heard:

“You Know The Meaning Of Life

& So You Are A Star —

so go to sleep”
