The Hawk Deck 10:50am

Since March 31, 1993

I have been in a perpetual state

of Illumination

broken only by the depression

yet even then I retained the memory

of The Shower Of Silver Lights

which follow Me religiously

as I follow Them

to where I am Today

sitting in My Red Deck Chair

in the calm of early Autumn

under The Halo

of Our Existence

shining through a murky sky
