"Good Morning, World!"

REACTION

The Hawk Kitchen 8:00pm

Purple is The Colour of My Heart

vacated

Silver The Colour of My Jewels —

Red is My Fury

no longer suppressed

These Three Components

sustain Me

now that The Little Man in Black

is Gone

PAINTING PLAN

The Hawk Kitchen 6:32pm

I could sit on Our New Kitchen Floor

Indian Style, like a Child

with stretched canvas

in front of Me, flat —

I could puddle The Purple

& get The Metallic Grey, Silver

oozing into The Plum

iridescent

& splotched with Red

from a spray can

liquid & interceding

out of My Lap

BLACK JOURNAL, BLACK & SILVER PEN

The Hawk Kitchen 4:30pm

I feel like physically throwing

paint around on a canvas

on the basement floor

or deck with drop cloths

& weights against the wind

an 8 X 10 footer

of purple & metallic grey

NO BLACK

hints, territories, of red

I have never before

felt this urge

UNPOSSESSED

The Hawk West Desk Window 11:12am

The Only Remnants

of My Black Possessions

are This Journal, My Pen

My Black Cat Astro

& One Pair of Jet Bead Earrings

Given To Me

By My Mother
