And Eye Have Maria

How Do You Get To Be Anything

Without Being A Wanna-be?

NOTE:  Eye am already

everything I have ever

wanted to Be —

except a helicopter pilot —

not YET


The Hawk Deck 10:10am

I have said Good-bye

to My Darling Cow Bird

Whose love affair with My Car Mirror

is gone

He bowed off with another

female two weeks ago —

I have said Hello

to My Husband

and will be hanging The Bedding

in Our Hot Sun

I will be playing

The Cow Bird’s Song

on an internet recording

for The Arrival

of My Children

one week



The Tomato-coloured Couch 1:30pm

Not so long ago

I breast fed You, My Babies

and now You’re out West

planting trees, sleeping in trailers —

please have no truck

with bears or coyotes

have fun making lots of money

and stay safe

My Little Dear Ones


The Hawk Kitchen 6:55am

EYE saw the negative imprint

of a darkened galaxy

splattered on My Bread Board

when I went to make the coffee

I swept it in the sink

& wept for My Children



Mumbo, are You Out There

in Those Bushes?

are You alive or

are You dead?

Will The Gulls & Crows

leave You alone?

Mumbo, are You gone —

no more Mumbolette

with The Big Feet?

Hi My name

Mombo the cat.  I am

a very nice cat.  I

love kids.
