And So Will The World

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:11pm

I am going to paint

The Shower Of Lights

Yes — That Creepy Shower

which befell Me

on that famous date —

no — not October 22nd, 1993

BEFORE THAT — March 31st, 1993

I am going to do It


I am going to order

a 10-foot-long x 5-foot-wide

piece of canvas from Halifax

to be shipped — yes

I will be waiting for art supplies

again, but this time, this time

I will be ready
