NOW EYE HAVE THE SAME

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 10:05am

At Jordan Bay

My Grandmother

always watched The Ocean

dazzling —

She would tell Me

about The Diamonds

and Stars

and She would

allow Me to

relish Them and to

revel in Them

STRENGTH

The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:00pm

I Am Made Of Silver

My Heart Is Gold

My Legs Are Strong

To Carry Me

Where I Stand

Where I Speak

In Dripping Diamonds

Where I Spit

My Words Of Truth

Un-tasted

RINGS & THINGS

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:53pm

My Husband threw a splash

of diamonds upon

My Upright Hand

& yesterday My Birthright

Honour found Its way

across My Clasp

WORTH

The Tomato-coloured Couch 6:11pm

I am dripping in Diamonds

oozing Gold from every pore

radiating Silver with My widest reach

My Words carry

My Weight

When I die

I will be entombed

with

My Endless Scrawl

at

My

Feet
