"Good Morning, World!"

MEMORABILIA

Eliza’s Room 9:33pm

EYE sleep tonight

beneath the accouterments

of fame

surrounding the lavender corner

of My Daughter’s outgrown

room

it’s tiny — the room

the fame is huge

delineated by My Survival

of photos stretched out and hung

with congratulatory letters from New York City’s Former Mayor Ed Koch

and New Jersey’s Former Governor Thomas H. Kean

for My Painting Self Organizing Galaxy

which spawned 9/11

M(EYE) BLACK STAR 2

The Hawk Basement 10:00am

EYE don’t want anything

to out shine M(EYE) Black Star —

when I pour out the swampy green

I want it to haze into

the background

I want My Star in The Center

with ample usage

of radiating

silver

EYE SLEPT IN ELIZA’S ROOM

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 8:04am

A thin streak of yellow

lines the horizon

My Husband is sick

& doesn’t want coffee

I’ve poured My Self a cup of tea
