MISTRESS OF EXPRESSION

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 2:22pm

Would I get back

My Exuberance

if I donned My Black Oprah Dress

& loaded up My Wrists with Silver?

Would I tramp around

the house

belting out declarations — some

original — some not

to My Captive Audience of One:

My Despairing Husband

Would I feel the heady height

of My loquacious

Self?
