I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD

The Hawk Deck 11:11am

I unintentionally saved

a fly

dangling by one wing

from a frayed spider web

over My Kitchen Sink —

I thought He was dead —

I got out the dust mop

merely to sweep Him out

of My View

He stuck to the mop

I stuck My Index Finger

against His Re-instated Body

& He flew away

COLONIES

The Hawk Exercise Room Window 10:47am

Today before My Row

I opened the Hawk Exercise Room Window

finding two galactic

Spider Hatchings

— gold They are —

I am with Them

after My Row

One on the outside of the little screen

One on the inside

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

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

DETERMINISM

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 1:34pm

Seeing M(EYE) Halo

I Killed A Flying Insect —

Was I Wrong Or Right?

NEWS FLASH

The Hawk Computer 6:04 pm

My Husband, Dr William Hunter Blair, now believes

that My World Trade Center Roof Top Painting from 1984

titled Self Organizing Galaxy

may have given someone the idea

for 9/11

TRANSLUCENCY

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:22pm

Lime-green bug

in Your See-thru wings

You were pale yellow

You took to My Hand

FROM MAGGOT TO SENSATIONALISM

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 6:22pm

I found A Fly, dead

but He was Bottle Blue

too beautiful to throw outside

but I had to

I could not have Him

on display

on My Kitchen Window Sill

with My Blue Bottle

Pouring Sculpture

for which I paid

$180.00

or could I?
