PEPPERED SKY

The Hawk Window Seat 4:05pm

What Motivates The Bird

To Fly?

Is It Just That He

Has Wings?

Or Is It The Longing

For Companionship

That Keeps Him

In His School

Aloft?

ONE CLOUD

The Hawk Outpost 3:36pm

There Sits One Cloud

Perfectly Bulbous

Out Over My Flattened Sea —

Today Is A Day For Me

The Sun Is On The Sky

& I’ll Have Dinner Guests

To Round Out My Table

 

DOUBLE HUE

The Hawk Window Seat 6:25pm

We have two sunsets

going on here:

first in The West

where You would expect

to see The Fire

& then in The East

from The Corner Room

where layered grey clouds

are tinged pink

with the throwback

of a diminishing sun

BLACK LIGHT 2

The Tomato-coloured Couch 3:00pm

I come from The Body

In Death & Sickness

I abide

to shine out

for Reconciliation

Humanity gone

awry

in order

to See

SINISTER STAR

I have painted

The Sinister Star

It is lying/drying/dying

on My Basement Floor

upon My Living Room Wall

where It will rise above Me

as I sit on My Tomato-coloured Couch

writing of Its Existence

Sitting In The Warmth

The Spears Of Silver

are across The Sea

created from Light Streaming

Down

The Light makes Rays

Diagonal

Down

into The Lone Streak

along The Horizon

&

onto

Me
