First Open Window of Spring

Eye went to sleep

with the sound of peepers

and when I woke

the morning’s keepers

sweetly tweeted through

the fog —

For All Existance

Eye Thanked God

LUMINOSITY II

Eye would paint the sky

in oils feathering greys

for M(eye) clouds of Gold

DAWN

Sun-meshed horizon

colouring clouds, Eye can hear

M(eye) morning bird song

HEALED

I have been embraced

by a high white Baptist Church

and let go

like a helium balloon

by the ties

of my mother’s death

Maria

She is beautifully dark haired —

with Her Orange Blossom

poised above Her Left Ear —

She spoke, She speaks

melodiously into My Right Ear

I hear Her all day

all night:

She is My Woman/Child

The Death Throes of a House

Fly

are very scary indeed —

I picked One up to make

It Die

in My Hand

I placed Him —

legs — limp with Death

in the corner

of M(EYE)

FROWN

THE WONDERS OF SNOW

The Hawk King Bed 7:50am

EYE am Back

in My Husband’s Bed

in the wee hours

as His Guest

& Maid

but not as His Personal Dresser

EYE may or may not Cook

for Him

but I will no longer argue

& I will Dance & Dance & Dance

to M(EYE) Heart’s Content

UNTITLED

The Hawk Corner Room approx. 1:40pm

EYE have held

The Most Precious

of Life’s Juice

in M(EYE) Left Palm

& IT was The Colour

of Today’s First Snow

in Antioch Illinois

TIDINESS

The Hawk Corner Room 1:50am

EYE salute The New Corners

of M(EYE) House —

From Eliza’s Bed I face The West

Head On

and span My Naked Wrists across

The Globe

with no lint, loose strings or cat hair

galaxies
