From The Hawk Staircase

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

With Mouli Bouli purring against me

Eye sit at the top of my red stairs

with black railing

and black motif drips

on each riser

to write of this morning’s accomplishment:

unloaded my Chevy Malibu of 50 pieces

of work, my art

Eye am very proud of

exhibited at Th’Yarc

for the month just passed —

packed each piece away

in my art room/ office

except for the very last:

My Biographical Sign

hung in The Corner Room

next to “Iridescence”

also titled “Nova Scotia”
