"Good Morning, World!"

STARTING M(EYE) BODY

The Hawk Kitchen Sink 5:02pm

Into a cauldron

of an old half gallon

of “Deliciously Hot 2E1-8  F122”

I stirred all the reds

& purples I had from years ago

diluted with several sour cream containers

of water:

old tubes of Dioxine Purple

Permanent Alizarian Crimson

Cadmium Red Hue

Permanent Magenta

Permanent Rose —

I was going for Blood

but what I got

is Female Genitalia

ALIENS KEEP BACK

The Hawk Basement 10:34am

Last Night I had to roll

up My Aquatic Foliage

as I had signed it off

unsuitably for My Husband’s

viewer-ship

& so It lies

on My Basement Floor

ready to be saturated

with RAID

SLEEPING WELL

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:49pm

The Cry of The Gull

tells Me where I am

where I want to be

beside The Ocean

in a house I love

with cats I love

and A Husband

I am grateful for

in The Morning
