(An Arcata goddess)


Recorded Reading:



This woman is myself
If I were young and strong and well
Courageously authentic
And beautiful as hell

So much intelligence
And such enthusiasm lie
Beneath those freely tangled dreads
In that keen penetrating eye

She radiates all Womanhood
And Manhood also, what the hell
Whatever this soul undertakes
It will accomplish very well

I like to hang around with her
Because it never fails to be
Some of her goddess magic
Ends up rubbing off on me
