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?

THERE–I’VE SAID IT

The Hawk Kitchen 7:22pm

I hold a jar in My Left Hand

398 ml 14 oz liq

No Name

Puree de Pommes

non Sucre

straight from The Garden of Eden

not in temptation

but in nourishment

for The World

to see, feel

& swallow

The Meaning of Life

GAME OVER

The Hawk Kitchen 3:25pm

I have written My Self

into a corner

I have consumed a whole bowl

of Pop Corn

& taken My Ball, My Cap Gun

& My Dolly

home

I am The Petulant Child

Who’s eaten all Her Cookies & Milk

and left without thanking

The Mommy
