inside M(EYE) Little White Star Box

Interior —

for M(EYE) Shimmering Rose

Ring It, The Red Star, lies

among M(EYE)

other specks

taking up hardly any space

adding to M(EYE) Collection

of finds

from M(EYE) House

secured in one place

within the housing

for M(EYE)

Sacred

Jewel

PAINTING PROCESS

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:05pm

I have M(EYE) BODY

figured out —

after a blood red flood

(it was blood after-all)

I have the beginning of a star

in the center

& black drips adding action

along three of four sides

The Format is vertical

eleven feet high

The Star will be configured

according to

M(EYE) MIND

STARTING M(EYE) BODY

The Hawk Kitchen Sink 5:02pm

Into a cauldron

of an old half gallon

of “Deliciously Hot 2E1-8  F122”

I stirred all the reds

& purples I had from years ago

diluted with several sour cream containers

of water:

old tubes of Dioxine Purple

Permanent Alizarian Crimson

Cadmium Red Hue

Permanent Magenta

Permanent Rose —

I was going for Blood

but what I got

is Female Genitalia

“SILVER IS THE MOST UNDER-VALUED ASSET IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD”*

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:15am

In the glittering light

of last night’s full moon

I signed My Painting

Aquatic Foliage

naked but for My

Most Expensive Earrings

My One Concession

to symbolism

I signed My Initials

& those of My True Love

in Silver Glitter

and so as the painting

is erected in the exercise room

I will be rowing

along side

its other-worldly

dimensions

BUGS IN M(EYE) BASEMENT

The Tomato-coloured Couch 7:18pm

Tonight I spared The Life

of a 2nd Silver Fish —

The First One I squished

with My Sandal —

#2 was right against The Black Spiral

on My floor-laden painting

probably going after some glitter glue —

but He caught My Attention

at The Center of My Art

so I quietly observed His Behaviour

testing His Awareness of Me —

I put My index finger above Him

as if to squash

but He didn’t budge

so I let Him Be

MY ASTROPITHICUS

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 8:38pm

I understand the comfort

of holding & hugging

A 22lb Black Cat

on My Lap — I can hug Him

& leak out My Heart

into Him

& not worry about

being a burden

 

MEMORABILIA

Eliza’s Room 9:33pm

EYE sleep tonight

beneath the accouterments

of fame

surrounding the lavender corner

of My Daughter’s outgrown

room

it’s tiny — the room

the fame is huge

delineated by My Survival

of photos stretched out and hung

with congratulatory letters from New York City’s Former Mayor Ed Koch

and New Jersey’s Former Governor Thomas H. Kean

for My Painting Self Organizing Galaxy

which spawned 9/11

M(EYE) BLACK STAR 2

The Hawk Basement 10:00am

EYE don’t want anything

to out shine M(EYE) Black Star —

when I pour out the swampy green

I want it to haze into

the background

I want My Star in The Center

with ample usage

of radiating

silver

M(EYE) BODY

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 4:15pm

will be emblazoned

with underlining of Red

A Black Exclamation Mark

with The Point

a star

of glitter

against a dripping Swamp Green

from paint

in M(EYE) Basement
