Eliza’s Room 9:33pm

EYE sleep tonight

beneath the accouterments

of fame

surrounding the lavender corner

of My Daughter’s outgrown


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
