"Good Morning, World!"

THROW-AWAY GALAXIES

The Tomato-coloured Couch 11:47am

How many galaxies

have I picked up

blown into corners

of My Universe —

how many have I created

wiping up cat hairs

off The Kitchen Ottoman

or The Thick Grey Bath Mat

turned inside My Toilet Bowl

and scrubbed hairless

with a wet cloth?

THE POWER OF THE SUN

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:50am

The Sunlight beams Its Silver

in on Me at My Window

of The Hawk Kitchen Outpost

where I wait for coffee water

to boil

and decide that today

is My First Suitable Day

for hanging out The Wash
