LITERALLY WEIGHING MY WORK

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Hawk West Desk Window 1:38pm

Today I counted and weighed

My Volumes Of Writing —

38 Journals and My 364-page Typed Manuscript

weighing in on the bathroom scale

at 39 pounds

counting Birk’s largest bag

in-which They are contained

valuable to Me

nearly indecipherable to anyone

other than Me

& ready to hit the auction block

when I die

PS

In the meantime

I have put a pillow

on top

for a cat bed
