This Morning’s Dream

Eye have risen from The Vision

of standing on a big wide beach

around here somewhere

with no one there but Me

and as I stood at the edge of no waves

I felt that I was The Contaminant

and Eye called out, and out

to My Daughter Eliza

NOT DREAMS

The Hawk Window Seat 8:38am

Waking, briefly

seeing Liquid Blue

(Your typical sky blue)

crinkling all around, puddled —

next, a field of Blue Plastic

chips, shards, spread out

scattered

and This Morning, This Great Morning

(EYE) woke to see a flash:

Crystal Blue Droplets — A Myriad

IN THE UTILITY ROOM

The Hawk Basement 9:46am

M(EYE) Basement Floor

is galactic

I stand above

its stainage

of red & green

with excess sparkles

as The Stars —

trillions of Stars —

EYE couldn’t sweep

Them all up

UPON WAKING EARLY

The Hawk Queen Bed 6:24am

The Sky is aflame

with The Rising Sun

& I have seen multitudinous

stars

at the start

of My Day

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

ON A TRIP TO YARMOUTH

Highway 103, NS NOON

Before Bed

I take a selection

of pills

— ten to be exact —

some for My Body

some for My Mind

They restore My Sleep

but rob Me of My Dreams

and so now I have an aura

accompanying My Vision

when I exit

The Shower

in Day Light

MY ULTRA-VISION IS SILVER

The Hawk West Desk Window 2:25pm

My Ultra-vision is Silver

even in a sudden black-out

on a Saturday Afternoon

with dinner guests scheduled to arrive

@ 6:00

I have polished the salt shaker

but not the candelabra

I have set the table

with My Mother’s Silverware

— The Dish, Chicken Polenta, is prepared —

— just has to bake —

when & if My Electric Oven

turns on

IRIDESCENT HEART

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:00am

I sit inside a purple room

the chamber of a heart

when I close My Eyes

I see iridescent purple

& decide Whose Heart

I’m in
