STAKE A CLAIM

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:37am

Last night I made a giant painting

of clear water-logged vomit*

spewing out of Me

and out of Me

traced with blood in its final throes

as I sat on a sheep fleece

in front of the TV

*Hunter had to clean it up with a whole roll of paper towel

“NONE PLANNED”

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 10:11am

Standing firm in My Mrs Blair

grey sweat suit

from LL Bean

I order My Silver

watching The Shimmering Sea

and wearing no rings —

My Hands are naked

for the induction

of M(EYE) PROPHECY

THE BOX

May 9th, Eliza’s Room 9:16pm

My Jewellery Box

is My Star Chamber

all The Jewels are light

I wear Them to deck some parts of Me

abandoned from the sight

of symbolism and metaphor

surrounding My Gifts to Him

The One I dress My Self up for

with rings on every limb

THE COVERING

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 8:00am

Last night I sat

at the dinner table

with a napkin first

on My Head

then on My Face

then I graduated

to the veil from Rudy’s Sculpture

and covered My Self

in Its silken sheath

and stood like a ghost

declaring to My Second Husband

“I am to be seen by only DHW”

AND THIS RED STAR

The Tomato-coloured Couch 11:20am

EYE have placed another Star

— A Red One —

inside M(EYE) Little White Star Box

— the jewellery box with Black

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

NIGHT TIME

May 4, Eliza’s Room 8:56pm

The Heralding of Angels

awaits Me on a far distant

shore

where I will see The Prince

of My Dreams

& live forever

more

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

ALIENS KEEP BACK

The Hawk Basement 10:34am

Last Night I had to roll

up My Aquatic Foliage

as I had signed it off

unsuitably for My Husband’s

viewer-ship

& so It lies

on My Basement Floor

ready to be saturated

with RAID

“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

MOON SCAPE

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 8:11pm

The Moon Is Gold

Sometimes

When It Rises

But Always Turns

To Silver

High In

The Sky
