The Hawk  Living Room 

Today My husband’s Cami Cat

broke a beautiful dish

I’d placed for safe-keeping

on Eliza’s bathroom window sill —

She–The Cat — was locked away

to prevent Her from disappearing

into The Movers’ Truck

here to rid Me of My husband’s Shit

Well — The Job got stopped

much to My surprise

when various lawyers

caught wind

& threatened to sue The Mover

Who Knows My Brother
