"Good Morning, World!"


The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 5:50pm

I have lint bugs elasticized

around My Underwear waist bands

I have seen spies in the little hospital

where I had My Blood drawn

and urine sample surrendered

Am I Going Mad

or is this all perfection

of idiosyncrasies

like The Inclusion I so love

in My Birthday Diamond Ring?


The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 3:52pm

I don’t read any more

& My Idle Hands

are telling Me to take up

a hobby, like knitting

with giant knitting needles

& soft variegated yarn

I could make an Afghan

of no particular pattern

in a flash of leisurely hours

with large loopy-d-loops

& hairy thread

to throw on top of Me

in My Napping Bed
