"Good Morning, World!"

Month: March, 2014

LIGHT SOURCE

The Hawk West Desk Window 10:55pm

We are alive

and growing

from clay tracks

to veins of red and white cells

interlacing

Our bedrock cities

with electric towers

lit-up zones

We can be detected

when The Sun is behind Us

and when anybody feels

like looking

MORNING PLACE

The Hawk Kitchen 9:44am

Silver Greets Me

From The Earth And Sky

The Clouds Are Laced

With Watery Striation

The Ocean Is Streaked

With My Favourite Light

I Am Safely Stationed

In My Morning Place

SEEDS OF LIFE IN A DISTANT FLOCK OF BIRDS

The Hawk Window Seat 2:44pm

I Took My Shower

@ 2:22

I Was in There

For Untold Minutes, Hours, Days

I Am Still There

Rubbing My Eyes

Like A Child

Who Sees The Spray

Of The Universe

EXISTENCE

The Hawk Queen Bed March 21st 11:50pm

Please allow Me to explain

everything

in Galactic Terms —

if We are integrating with Aliens

it is mutually beneficial —

Yes, The Egyptians were convinced

of an afterlife

as I am convinced of God —

if the existence of Aliens

disputes the existence of God

I say No — We can and do

have both

INTO THE NIGHT

The Hawk West Desk Window 9:40pm

The Earth is under A Spell

or am I?

galvanized by not the shock

of 9/11

but by a deep mystery

which may never be abandoned

but from which We must

awaken

GOOD GOD

The Hawk Kitchen 6:47pm

I See A Bird Of Silver

Against A Cloud Of Grey

It Signals To Me

All Is Well

And This Is How We’ll Stay

ALIEN SPACE SHIP

The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:11pm

I put on My Raspberry Slippers

& got out The Mop

I mopped & I mopped

upstairs & down

I cleaned My Whole House

& still that 777 has not been

found

THAT WAS THAT

The Hawk Queen Bed 10:00pm

Tonight I saw a Nebula

of cat hair against a mat

black by the front door

with a Crescent Moon

of shedded cat claw

among the detritus of outdoors

tracked in

and as I contemplated from above

My Spectacle of Space

a fat cat came along

and sat

and sat

ASSIGNMENT

The Hawk Queen Bed 10:03pm

The nightly ointment applied

to My Doctor-Husband’s legs

has conditioned My Hands

ready for work

I will now delve into the guts

of Humanity

The Innards of The World

I will knowingly dirty My Hands

when I said I never would

serve God — I would serve

only My Self —

I have seen The Meaning of Life

and It is brazen and brash

as The Sun

and It is My Dark Haired Angel

God of My Creation

sitting on My Right Shoulder

declaring in Her Melodious Voice

“You Know The Meaning Of Life

And So You Are A Star —

So Go To Sleep…”

I will go now not to sleep

but to coat My Broad-palmed Hands

laden with the protective balm of Her Words

to absolve the recesses of My Skin

of any fatal impurity

and pummel My New-born Fists

into every Man, Woman and Grown-up Child
