THE POWER OF TWO

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 10:22am

My Ten-thousand Square Foot Painting

Self Organizing Galaxy

still EXISTS

albeit underground

in two unwieldy bundles

somewhere within the confines

of The Orangetown Dump

in Rockland County, New York

where I grew up

ACCOMPLISHMENT!!

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 10:51am

EYE just hit

22 minutes & 22 seconds

on M(EYE) C2

& have come up

to The Hawk Kitchen Outpost

to see M(EYE) Sea

struck in Silver

YAY!!!

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

MEMORABILIA

Eliza’s Room 9:33pm

EYE sleep tonight

beneath the accouterments

of fame

surrounding the lavender corner

of My Daughter’s outgrown

room

it’s tiny — the room

the fame is huge

delineated by My Survival

of photos stretched out and hung

with congratulatory letters from New York City’s Former Mayor Ed Koch

and New Jersey’s Former Governor Thomas H. Kean

for My Painting Self Organizing Galaxy

which spawned 9/11

NEWS FLASH

The Hawk Computer 6:04 pm

My Husband, Dr William Hunter Blair, now believes

that My World Trade Center Roof Top Painting from 1984

titled Self Organizing Galaxy

may have given someone the idea

for 9/11

NOTICE TO MY READERS 222

EYE have not been writing much —

EYE have been making recordings into M(EYE) cell phone

in-which M(EYE) Husband does not seem very interested.

A STUDENT OF COOPER UNION

The Hawk Kitchen 8:19am

I once created

a giant banana popsicle

covered in chocolate wax

It got driven on top

of a car

through Lower Manhattan

one fabulous night

It visited a gay bar

down by The Hudson

to arrive at The World Trade Center

SILVER BULLET

The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:33pm

at the stake I will be shot

in The Back again

ASLEEP

The Hawk Corner Room 1:10pm

My Bed is laid

with The Quilt of Purple Ripples

under an array

of framed memorabilia

of Self Organizing Galaxy

in Eliza’s Room

while She is away

messing about in boats
