"Good Morning, World!"

Month: December, 2014

FATHER, SON & HOLY GHOST

The Hawk Kitchen 7:32pm

The Three Most Commonly Used

Curse Words In North America

are

Fuck, Shit & Jesus Christ

& There Are At Least 3 Very Good Reasons

behind each one

L is for LOVE

The Hawk Basement NOON

I stood in the laundry room

contemplating a change

of rowing gear —

looking down at My Flimsy Shorts

I saw a tiny star

like the ones from My Visual Field Test

drop

into

My Field of Vision

&

so

I wear

a tee-shirt from Eliza

which says

“GOLD is GOD”

spelled

with

an

“L”

 

VISUAL FIELD TEST

The Hawk Kitchen 10:15am

I stood like Lolita

in one gym sock

at the head of the stairs

while WHB informed Me

the eye doctor

found nothing wrong

& that I just have to live

with seeing My Aura

which is My Halo

The Sun Emerges

The Hawk Corner Room 8:15am

I see a vertical

Ray Of Hope

defusing now at the top

of bulbous clouds

and emanating downward

into pink diagonals

at The Edge

of My Silver  Ocean

NEW LIGHT

The Hawk Outpost 8:06am

A New Day is upon Us

and A New Year

bespoken by the clouds

rippling above a line

of peach

telling Us We’re in

The Clear

PRECISION CUT

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:22pm

I have X’d out

the 10/22

next to My Signature

on “My Black Star”

It makes Me feel good

to see this black line

over something once held

in the highest esteem

now ground down

into The Earth

PEAK’S BIRTHDAY

The Tomato-coloured Couch 6:35pm

I have come a long way

since My Son

was born

27 years ago

& I have decided to make

My New Year’s Resolution

early:

NO MORE SIGNIFICANCE

TO SEQUENTIAL 2’s —

if I could stop drinking I can

stop anything —

and I WILL stop The World

when It’s Time

NEUTRICIEL

The Hawk Window Seat 9:11pm

I inadvertently support

the pharmaceutical industry —

I’m a hard swallower —

I glug down My 13 Pills

all at once —

& hope for the best rest

I can get

A Deer Trots By

The Hawk Outpost 4:49pm

There’s That Beautiful Soft Light

Along The Horizon

Again

Shielding Me From Harm

While My Husband Takes A Nap

& The Cats Finish Their Supper

SILVER AURA

The Tomato-coloured Couch 3:00pm

I stood in a corner

beside The Photograph

of Dr Schweitzer holding Me

& chanted out for The World to witness

“I Stand For Silver”

“I Stand For Silver”

“I Stand — For Silver”

I chanted & chanted

until I could chant

no more

& became The Petulant Child —

now there lies

a cat

where My Feet were planted
