EYE Know An Old Woman

Who Lives In The Shoes

Of Her Dead Husband

As My Mother Used To Do —

My Mother Kept Her Stash

Underneath Her Wood-burning Stove

And Could Never Bring Her Self

To Mail Them

Back To Her Departed Love


The Hawk Outpost 2:08pm

from My Reverie

as I gazed over The Ocean’s

Today is an ordinary day

Good Friday

& My┬áMother’s┬áPain seeps

of large musical talent

Her Pain operates generationally

through Me

now that I am unhinged

from Her

I remain

entranced by

an iridescent disc

yelling at Me
