"Good Morning, World!"


The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 4:11pm

Bow-sawed and dragged

from The Scrub Spruce Forest Bog

I got M(EYE) Tree

but It wouldn’t fit

down the hall

to Come To Life

in The TV Room —

It’s laying on The Hawk Living Room Floor

dead as a doornail

& I had a Devil of a Time

getting It in

— severed one limb —

so far The Cats

are ignoring It

Spanish Moss & all



The Hawk Kitchen 10:33am

EYE will venture out

into The Cold Dark Woods

behind My Obstructive House

I will wear My Rubber Boots

& seek The Tree

of My Dreams:

an old dead branch

with Spanish Moss

& maybe bugs

I will saw it down

with My New Bow Saw

from Wilson’s

I will drag it in

to turn erect

in Hunter’s TV room

secured inside

a circular well

of the heaviest
