"Good Morning, World!"

The Social Modulator

That’s Me —

caught between two worlds:

Our Earth with Its mutidudinous

religions —

and the Extraterrestrial Domain

of Our Heavens —

EYE do NOT believe in Hell,

or Mr. D’evil,

or Evil incarnate —

EYE do NOT believe in Sin,

though Eye carry Christ’s message

and EYE am a MEAT EATER,

solid disciplinarian

non-sports enthusiast

all-around artist

and purveyor of ULTRAVISION

The Grounds Keeper

My Husband lives

adjacent to a grave yard

where plastic flowers

blow into His Yard —

strewn along the edges

of His Drive

for Me to pick up

to arrange

on His Table

Eye Am Rich

Eye am rich

beyond compare

with the view

of last night’s

Dawning,

Mauve, and pale

pale blue, and

golden embers of

new light*

 

*topped by the crescent moon

Star Bathing

Eye lie in our yellow light,

honest

on a couch of neutral delight

warm

in the fall of my meandering

through single-dom & persuasion

failed —

my marriage is not

salvageable —

may Eye rest

now

 

Our Curve

I can see The Curve

of Our Earth

carried over The Eastern Horizon

by My Layer of Cloud Bank

not parallel

but dipping

@ either end
