The Hawk Queen Bed 7:55am

I want to write about the big spider web

wet, I saw this morning

at My Kitchen Window — with a new one

a little one getting sewn write before My Eyes

I watched it until it was finished

and the coffee was ready

and then I looked at the scraggly apple

to see it festooned with more wet webs

and then I looked beyond

to the scrub forest

and saw the dew-laiden trees

each with more than one

enormous galactic web

spreading out through

My Extended View in front

of the early morning sun

wet on the Atlantic Ocean


The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 4:13pm

legions of mosquitoes

have swarmed into the broken webbing

of yesterday

catching themselves, in some cases

one upon the other

still alive

& how I wonder

can their scrambling efforts be

for each other?
