"Good Morning, World!"

OF COURSE SHE TOOK HER RED SOX TEDDY BEAR

The Tomato-coloured Couch 6:30pm

She left tonight for Her Cottage —

Eliza’s Cottage — The Atlantic House She partially grew up in

It’s fifteen minutes closer to Her Summer Job

& She took the dehumidifier from The Hawk

to get the dampness out

She took Her Vegan Food from the cupboards

& left most of Her Clothes in Her Closet

The LincolnĀ She left in was making Its high-pitched scary noise

but She drove away

anyway

STRING THEORY

The Hawk Queen Bed 10:10am

I have witnessed The Mad Attraction

between two particles of hair-like house dust

on the black screen of My Daughter’s Cell Phone:

on The Left was posited a “crinkly” piece —

to Its Right a “straight ” one

I moved My Left Finger to wipe The Pair off

when They Sprung to Life

& Connected

end to end
