THE MOON EAST & WEST

The Hawk West Desk Window 7:40am

We saw The Moon at Dinner

full on Today’s Calendar

rising big and gold over The Atlantic —

My Husband says It’s boring

once It gets up there

and just stays —

but EYE know It doesn’t just stay —

that familiar and ancient disc of Human EYE-dent-ity

I saw It again —

this time over The Western Islands

in the pink of morning

when I pulled up The Shade

FIRST POEM IN A NEW JOURNAL

The Hawk West Desk Window 8:45pm

I can watch The Sun go down

in The West

over prehistoric islands

then I can watch It rise

in The East

over My Favourite

Ocean

ON THE WAY TO YARMOUTH

My Birthday is The Same Day

as Stephen Harper’s

I’m 3 months older

than Obama
