MISSED OPPORTUNITY

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 8:30am

When The Signing of My World Trade Center Painting

Self Organizing Galaxy

was to be on the news in New York

Channel 11, WPIX @ 11 o’clock

I was to watch It

in My Eagerness

with two friends

in someone’s loft apartment

but by the time It aired

one friend had gone

to the bathroom

& the other had gone

out for cigarettes
