"Good Morning, World!"

SEALED FATE

Somewhere in my house 9:00pm

Eye have left him

In my wake

Awash in a pool

Of questioning

And will not call him names

Though I could —

Eye will not

Call

 

Finished

My Window Seat 7:05am

Now thatĀ Stratospheric UniverseĀ 

Is framed by Its ancient

Necklace

Eye see The Painting

Through the eyes

Of the dead —

Those cherished

Who are no longer here —

My List?

My Grandparents

My Parents

My Brother

My Uncles

My Aunts

and Guy Tozzoli

Former Director

of The World Trade Center

Who used to call me

by My Last

Name
