"Good Morning, World!"

JOANNA’S ATTITUDE

The Hawk Portico 7:44pm

I have an attitudinal stance

toward The Surf

Its Sound

projects My Hips forward

My Arms are casually folded

My Head juts

from a profile view

I might be sloped like an S

from the back

I would look held in

crouched

like The Nautilus

ON THIS DAZZLING DAY

The Hawk Portico 10:22am

Dr. Death

Die For Me

so I can Resurrect You

again & again —

David

You Will Never Die

though Your Pen Name

has that flare of intimacy

I will Reclaim You

every time You are Exorcised

from My Brain

& We Will Form A Cycle

of Reclamation

Redemption

& never loss
