"Good Morning, World!"

Mrs. Atwood’s Dress

Last Evening in The Sun

Eye visited Mrs. Atwood

and She had on

A Dress

of classic 30’s design:

Poka Dotted Black

against a delicate yellowed knit

w/ pleated skirt

below an elongated waist.

She looked demure

reclining in Her Rocker

eating a vaniĺla cream cookie


while Her Little Glass of Pepsi

Popped Its Lit-up Fizz

Against Her Sun-filled Window.

Natalie’s Birthday

Eye See M(Eye) Double Sun

Of Silver

Out There, Over

The Ocean

Signalling 2 Me

The Ever-present Past

Along W/ M(Eye) Future

Of Glory Yet Unknown
