EYE WAS A MUMMY ONCE

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:55pm

EYE was a Mummy once

wrapped in My intricate wrappings

I couldn’t see The Sky

for the sarcophagus

carved out with

M(EYE) LIFE STORY —

I lay in My Tomb

with My Innards preserved

and noblemen flocked

to see

My Grave

and to gaze at

My Holy Body

locked away

in stone
