THE HAWK NEW BEDROOM 2:15pm

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

Our New Bedroom

made new by The Floor

and careful arrangement of old furniture

— I got Eliza to help with The Bed —

is finished in the aftermath

of Super Sandy’s Nor’ Eastern Spiralling Edge

— Our only casualty here

the frayed and torn edges

of neighbouring Canadian Flags —

— Rain Warning still in the forecast —

but we will sleep

in refinement

amidst the unleashing roar of Our Ocean
