"Good Morning, World!"

Month: March, 2016

EVENING SCORE

The Hawk West Desk Window 7:30pm

The murky sun of twilight

sets on My Sleep Deprivation —

I did row this morning,

My 10,000 Metres

but that was due to hype

more so than a proper night’s rest

& I hope as I have taken My Pills

two hours early

that I will resume

the normalcy

of sleep

MORNING POUR

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:50am

With The Halos of Sun

through My Lash Extensions

I see My Morning Row Complete

I see My Day full

of task tsk tsk

I will be forever

Young

 

EYE HAVE A LIMITLESS MIND

The Hawk Kitchen: 9:59am

If Trump doesn’t make it

that won’t stop Me

EYE have a limitless Mind

& I will row

to M(EYE) Destiny

THE NEW COOPER STUDENTS*

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 10:44am

This morning before work

My Husband Dr W. Hunter Blair

read an article in The Guardian

w/pic re: New York College Moves To Strip Gender Markings From All Bathrooms

Cooper Union students ripping

the Male/Female signs off

all the bathrooms

in deference to trans-gender students —

now where will the real

men and women go?

*saw a star for this poem

HALO EFFECT

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 4:25pm

What happened to that

strident parader

with Her Raucous Laughter

& clapping hands

posing artiface

in Her Husband’s Face

calling up a game of chance

a guessing game

neither wanted to play?

What happened to Her High Blood Pressure

measured every half hour

four hours straight

to be knocked down

the next day spent

in Her Grey Bathrobe?

TWITCHING

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:36am

Yesterday I spent a solid

half hour binocularly focused

on a North American Flicker

scrabbling around in one spot

in Our Front Yard

near the driveway

where Hunter’s Secretary

was due to arrive

for a dinner date

She was a special guest

all right —

She drove in, in Her Husband’s Truck

and scared My Flicker away

She stood in Our Doorway

in all Her Glory

of lost 7o lbs

eyelash extensions —

a vision of red-crested delight

and boy was I focused

FIRST LIGHT

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 6:15am

I see a strip of the faintest dawn

where last night I saw The Moon

blood red and then a Gold

Medallion

dripping into the sea:

a lot goes on in The East

from where I watch

at My Kitchen Outpost

while I wait for coffee

to steep

HERE’S THE DREAM —

The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:40pm

Rudy Link’s Head was cushioned

on My Stomach

as I lay on  My Side

of Dr Blair’s Bed

 I was attending to

Rudy’s Hair & Face

the way

I tend to Hunter’s
