The Grande Dame

The Grande Dame

Hallways
of the Grande Dame .
How many babies  were
born , wrapped
and carried here ?
How many women healed ?
Walls painted white
now are waiting
for the artist’s hand .
Some artists
sit thinking ,
some
dancing ,drinking ,
or  pigment mixing.
Lilith and Eve ,
they were progenitors
of the Grande Dame
MD.
Egyptian eyes,
Ank in hand ,
and on her forehead  .
the last maquillage
before
by design
she, Isis is brought down
to her end
for a shining
new beginning ,
for the regenerative
concrete, glass
and steel
of  woman’s
new healing.

Linguist Croon

Tongue and groove
on the move .
The poetry of
linguistic action
gives a satisfaction
that glides
beyond the recognition
of any verbal mission
or statement of the stars
or any of the
opposing movements ,
whether Venus or Mars ,
a beating  heart ,
a linguistic start
that makes the art
so lasting
and ultimately  ours ,
in time .
