The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 5:05pm

I am living every woman’s dream

with 2 handsome husbands

& a lover in the wings —

I can make bread pudding

to save the birds from My Cooking

I can sit in My Grandmother’s Wrought Iron Chair

to look at The Sea,

My Pristine Blue Horizon

& remember what She said when I was a child:

“Someday Joge, You are going to make some man

very happy”
