"Good Morning, World!"

Today’s Dawn

Eye examine The Line

of Sky @ M(Eye) Horizon

outfitted by more than a bank

of Cloud

The Streak of Light

is M(Eye) Streak

and I’ll be alright

inside The Dawn

of Today

Supreme Irony

20 years ago

Dr Blair put His Arms Out

to Me

in The Doorway

to His (old) Examining Room

and to My Refusal


Today He sat

in His (new) Waiting Room

while I lowered My Self

to His Floor

and to His Refusal





M(Eye) Calling

Bleat of The Willet

Sounds of M(Eye) Nova Scotia

Cr(Eye) of The Gull 2

Tonight Eye Visited

Tonight Eye Visited

The Guzzel*

once again

this time Filled to the brim

to the far edges of the laid out flats

more Full than Eye had ever seen It

and Eye stood to look

to take It all in

and thought of M(Eye) Husband


On M(Eye) way home

Eye heard The Rocks laugh

with The Tumbling Waves

and Eye wished He could

stand with Me

2 listen

Eye still have The Silver

Streaked and Washed

M(Eye) Motherhood

Eye cut a bright figure

for Mother’s Day

when Eye have lost a daughter

and wear Black Turtle Neck

over Black Pleated Skirt

— above the knee —

Eye am in proper mourning

for M(Eye) Maria

and Eye will never remove

Her Gold Nugget Ring

worn on M(Eye) Right Ring Finger

in Her Honour

Masturbation Is Not M(Eye) Style

Eye do not like


though Eye eat one every day

–2– keep The Doctor away


Eye do not like

English cu-cum-bers

though M(Eye) Husband is a Brit


and Eye do not like

zucchinis despite their obvious shape

though Eye can make

a mean zucchini casserole

–2– feed The Man

of M(Eye) Reality



Eye live to hear

The Song of Birds

It’s purity to M(Eye) Ear



Eye live to see

The Ocean’s Glint

to M(Eye) Scope



Eye live to feel

The Calm of Life

to M(Eye) Mind


Keep On Fuckin’

Eye have walked The Line

of Sobriety

down The Center

of M(Eye) Cruelty

The Shoes i wore were M(Eye) Jesus Boots

as witness –2– Our Fluidity
