Eve, We are Queens
Oh Eve,
it wasn’t the serpent that tricked you,
but they don’t know that.
They don’t know it was I who kissed you,
or that it was you who tasted me.
It was not some strange Fruit
granting knowledge, it was I,
not the serpent, who led to sin.
God could never stand the idea of
two women bowing to no men.
He is after all a King, a man,
making us think that we were lesser than Him,
lesser than Adam because he made us
out of Adams bones.
God could never stand for us to worship each other,
making us less, saying we are part of man,
calling us wo - man and fe - male.
We are strength and breath in our bodies,
does not the Earth have strength in it,
for trees will blow with the wind?
Does not men come from our bodies?
Do we not nourish them with
the liquid strength from our bodies?
A King cannot rise without coming from a Queen.
We are Queens Eve,
We are the Queens that Man and God would deny,
We are Queens and they call it sin, calling us woman,
and demean us as witches,
as t

A Holy Name, A Strong Name
Mary, what a holy name.
The whore, the mother,
the saint who took care of poor children,
the saint who nursed the sick till she died.
If Mary is such a hallowed name,
I won't bequeath it to my daughter,
for there is no life but death for a Saint,
a crushing defeat with a name erased.
I would name her for Artemis,
so that she may be the huntress,
the goddess of the pale moon,
and fierce protector of the young.
'Defend all young girls to be who they are'
would be her battle cry as she clutches her mace
and her keys in her other hand as she stares down men
and all the enemies that would come for her.
Or maybe I should name her Athena,
that she may be blessed with many gifts,
or maybe she would be a headache for men,
filled with courage and war strategy,
knowing how to best put the men who
would trample and rape her into their places.
I would give her a strong name, so that she too,
would have the strength of a Divine Goddess -
a name that may be filled with burden and longing,
that she wo

Literature
Half a Rib
I wonder if anyone
ever stopped to think
about language and how
one cannot escape the male gender.
We are fe - male, s - he, wo - man,
we are man - kind and hu - man.
We are always a "girl"
even in our own thoughts,
told to be a lady, act like a lady,
and when we bleed we are wo - man.
Why couldn't the Hulk be He-Hulk
like She-Hulk, or must the defining
words of our own super heroes, must be
like Super Woman, Cat Woman?
Right, we are still part of Man,
half a rib, bow your head Mary
mother of Jesus, bow your head
Magdalena, the whore.
Hello Princess, Hello Angel,
greets the stalker man who is a demon
in disguise, ready to harm, to cause fear,
did it hurt when you fell from heaven?
No, for the sweetest taste for us
has always been the Fruit of Knowledge.
No, for we crawled our way out of hell,
empowered by our sisters and mothers,
the generations before who educated us,
who scream "Lift your head up, bow to no man!"
Yet we women, mothers and maidens,
burnt and accused for serving the De

Foolish
Exploding over the walls,
your personal Jesus can't save you.
Why, why, why
her demons scream in her face.
Blinding and illusionary in the dark,
demanding illumination,
but you and she can't see,
all pent up and foolish actions.

Literature
Stranger
Kill me now lest I dream to deep
or to fast that I am swallowed
by all that is and was.
While chasing the white stag,
the trees melt and seas boil
the world seems repugnant.
From the land of frozen
lips become black and blue
with stiff movements of uncertainty.
From the land of the scorching,
the heart melts and explodes
while the minds discovers phantasmagoria.
And within the realm of copse,
the mind discovers the unearthing,
and there is silence on the lips.
Oh where oh where have I gone,
where is this stag and feast
taken me that I am a stranger?
Within this flow of possibilities,
a sea full of obscurity and absurdity,
there is a stranger staring back at me.

Literature
Does it loose meaning?
If I say I'm sorry
does it change a thing?
Would to keep saying
that one word be demeaning?
To say it today
and then say it the next
to say it again and again
does it not loose meaning?
Should I say that one-
for just a small taste of:
anger, annoyance, bitterness,
a raised voice in a sentence?
Should I say I'm sorry?

Literature
But, still this image...
I remember the days
of sunflowers and daises;
of passion flowers blooming
and the consciousness of a lotus.
Memories of wind and sun,
water lapping upon coasts
and tidal waves of revolution -
the true beginnings of a peculiar bloom.
Washing up on stranger shores,
staring at a new symmetry,
the forming of a unknown world -
the starting of quiet discontent.
An invention, a discovery, outlandish!
Growing faster, faster, fast -, fa -
to a grotesque transformation
into an astonishing reflection.
Expanding and contorting,
flowers bursting in fire and rebirth;
from marvelous and into extraordinary
but still, this image...
(               ).

Literature
A Glass Jar
I fought with a pen instead
never thinking to use a sword.
Words flowed unbidden, non-rhyming,
the beginnings of a strange symmetry;
These words whispered across the pages,
ink constantly flowing, flowing -
rivers of words pouring out of pen
into a glass jar full of dreams.
Alas, these images of past, present
and the future of my yesterdays,
are only just a glass jar full of dreams.

Literature
Glimpse, A Glint, of possibilities
A flash, one moment,
just a simple glimpse
one whisper full of meaning
and eyes shining out bright.
The sun catches upon a shine,
a glint, an echo, a brush,
a field of a soft golden glow
and trees of deep, deep roots.
Promise, promise, promise,
a promise of something more -
left or right, or walk off;
Make it quick! Make it quick!
Brimming full of the more,
bubbling over, flowing out
quickly take a sip from it
or the moment is gone to soon!
A moment, a glint, an echo,
one glimpse of what could be;
if only, if only but for one
moment to make a choice.
Suddenly, but oh so suddenly
It is gone.

I love Autumn. It is my favorite season but sadly the really good colors are only here briefly.

We are Queens Eve,
We are the Queens that Man and God would deny,
We are Queens and they call it sin, calling us woman,
and demean us as witches,
as the reason why they Fall.
We are Queens, they should know,
there was never a serpent of lies between us,
just a Man, a would be God.
Eve, We are Queens
Lately my poetry has been drawing deeply from not only mythology but also from a Biblical stand point.

Please don't get me wrong, I do have a deep respect for Christians and a great love for Jesus Christ as a Light - Bearer.  I draw a lot of the this imagery out of my own anger towards the way society was formed.  I am so grateful to be alive during this point of history.  I have tampons and pads (even if they are still considered a luxury, free condoms, but not pads for something women can't control?).  We are moving forward to where women have rights and equal pay, but there are still issues that needs to be addressed, like the gap in pay between white women and women of color.  We are moving forward and that is a good sign, a hopeful sign.

I would give her a strong name, so that she too,
would have the strength of a Divine Goddess -
a name that may be filled with burden and longing,
that she won't be sub-servant to a God,
that she would rule with a partner worthy of her,
as Persephone and Hades rule the Underworld.
May her name be fierce, proud, and so that
when she is a withered crone, those who knew her would say:
'She was a Mortal Goddess who walked with us on this Earth.'
A Holy Name, A Strong Name
Lately I have been thinking about children and I really want to be a mom.  I want to be young for my children unlike my parents.  I really hope I get a girl and this...this poem was kind of inspired around it.  I do have picked out a name for a girl and a name for a boy.
