TIRED

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 9:22am

EYE woke this morning

to a sky of white

in the aftermath

of seeing My Halo

for most of yesterday

— I feel worn out

in My Heavy Grey Robe

with the radio overlapping

My Husband’s soccer

“and the shadow of the day

will embrace the world in grey –“*

 

Linkin Park

POT O’ SILVER

The Hawk Dining Room 8:17pm

Tonight I see

a rainbow

complete

over The Atlantic Ocean

& Tonight I question

the wonder of My Halo

seen again Today

for forty minutes

of intensity, distraction

& sacredness

of Human Vision

MY BROTHER

The Hawk Queen Bed 3:43pm

My Brother Howard often complained

of a pain in His Heart

& no one could understand why —

doctors could find nothing wrong

& He went to His Grave

with a mysterious awareness

comparable to the physicality

of My Animated Halo

& He went to His Grave

minus His Heart

& His Brain

MY ORACLE

The Tomato-coloured Couch 12:50pm

It started in The Shower

last fall

against the white

bathroom stall

& then I started seeing

It against the white

dishwasher in My Kitchen

I even carried It

into Sobey’s

one night while Hunter

waited in the car

I saw It again last night

& watched It circle My Head

in The Mirror of My All

I AM HERE

February 14th, The Hawk Queen Bed 11:30pm

My Halo is My Tiara

pressed from the finest Silver

filigree

encrusted with diamonds

dripping with pearls

like Princess Di’s

I’m tide to It

now — It has become

My Sign

My Signature

HERE I GO!

The Hawk West Desk Window 12:52pm

When I See My Halo

I Am Lit

by the pervasion

of The Shower Of Lights

I recognize

The Strength

of My Surroundings

The Strength

of  All People

within

ALERT 2

The Tomato-coloured Couch 5:22pm

My Halo is back

visiting Me for half an hour

while I listened

to world financial forecasts

with Hunter

VISUAL FIELD TEST

The Hawk Kitchen 10:15am

I stood like Lolita

in one gym sock

at the head of the stairs

while WHB informed Me

the eye doctor

found nothing wrong

& that I just have to live

with seeing My Aura

which is My Halo

EXISTENCE 2

The Hawk Deck 10:50am

Since March 31, 1993

I have been in a perpetual state

of Illumination

broken only by the depression

yet even then I retained the memory

of The Shower Of Silver Lights

which follow Me religiously

as I follow Them

to where I am Today

sitting in My Red Deck Chair

in the calm of early Autumn

under The Halo

of Our Existence

shining through a murky sky
