january 30 1982


self-contained, yet

that lonely night feeling
not of lonely
but of night
the day no different
my paintings stacked
200 deep
womanwords scrawled
on a child's notebook paper
wondering if it makes
a bit of difference
to another woman
(as it does to me)
that women write and dance
and sing and paint
for her

Rebirth of Artemis 2:7 1987;
The Beltane Paper's Octava 1:7 1987

[undated] note
paintings now are stacked nearly 400 deep
