"Good Morning, World!"

PROCLAMATION

The Hawk Kitchen 8:22pm

In This Black Book

I Write

M(EYE) Proclamation:

I

Am

The

Church

M(EYE)

Body

Is

M(EYE)

Steeple

M(EYE)

Body

Is

M(EYE)

Mind

M(EYE)

Church

Is

M(EYE)

Mind

Standing

for Freedom

from Entrapment

Freedom

To Fart

Like Every Human Being

I Carry

an English Dictionary

for reference

& not for instruction

I attempt to guide

I have to eat

M(EYE) Supper

Now

P.S.

I have to name M(EYE) Church:

The Joanna Hyde Pass Gas Chapel

I Drink The Golden Fluid

The Hawk Kitchen 6:16pm

I Drink The Golden Fluid

of My Beer

in My Concept 2 Drinking

Glass

& I feel, feel, feel

I feel

for Everyone

trapped

by illness

or made-up labels

People in prisons

I feel for My World

I feel for My Planet

I feel for

My

Self’s

Capacity

 

Healing Touch

The Hawk Kitchen 5:13pm

When A Mother

purses Her Lips

like a heart

& kisses Her Child’s

boo boo

She makes everything better

When People hug

Each Other

They impart Their Mighty Particle

of Love

When I hug My Big Black Cat

Astro

I feel My Love

zooming

into

Him

exhaustion

The Hawk Queen Bed 3:57pm

When I Close My Eyes

I See The Seething Mass

of Humanity, like a swarm of bacteria

covering the habitable parts

of This Earth

I see Them undulating

in Their Sex

in Their Food Consumption

I see Them in Their Veins of Traffic

Are They Building

Monuments

to survive

or Are They Sleeping

Like Me

until

I Wake Up, Get Up

to look in The Morning Mirror

at My Messy Hair —

Will We Wash Our Faces

In The Light Of The Sun

Or The Light Of The Moon?
