“SILVER IS THE MOST UNDER-VALUED ASSET IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD”*

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:15am

In the glittering light

of last night’s full moon

I signed My Painting

Aquatic Foliage

naked but for My

Most Expensive Earrings

My One Concession

to symbolism

I signed My Initials

& those of My True Love

in Silver Glitter

and so as the painting

is erected in the exercise room

I will be rowing

along side

its other-worldly

dimensions
