"Good Morning, World!"


The Hawk TV Room 6:11pm

During The NYC September

of 1984

EYE painted

The Bull’s EYE

for Our Twin Towers

filmed by German Television —

when I mailed That Video

to My Father in Saudi Arabia

He never got It

I Believe M(EYE) Video Was Confiscated

by The Islamic Religious Police

Circulated Through Various Extremist Factions

inflamed by the overt display

of a beautiful Western Woman

with Long Blond Hair

doing & achieving such

A Public & Powerful Act —

I believe The Bombing

of February 1993 was instigated

by M(EYE) Painting

“Self Organizing Galaxy”

The Coup d’etat


Our Precious



The Hawk West Desk Window 12:06pm

I emerged dressed for a party

from The A Train

@ 110th Street


& was blocked on the stairs

by a young punk

making hand signals

asking Me if I knew

where to get The A Train

I said, “You know perfectly well

where to get The A Train –”

but by then the crowd

was gone

I was back on the platform

two other muggers

approached from either side

I was caught

they demanded My Wallet

which was in a shoulder bag

I said, “What if I don’t give It to you?”

the thug from the stairs

pulled out a switch blade

I dug out My Purse —

the guy to My Left

took off My World Trade Center Watch

given to Me by My Mother

the guy to My Right looked

@ My Mother’s Silver Bangles

but didn’t take Them


The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 9:50am

I looked for A Silver Streak

out upon The Water

& saw A Silver Cloud


meshed within

The Sky

parallel to

My Horizon
