|duende press broadside december 1994|
May this be an opening, a revolution of the Sandoval
CD-Rom slowed to one cycle per second
A see thru discovery that is yet to appear before Coronado’s eyes
that slows down into myth of the rocking Corn Maiden, yes!
A stirring of Zia Santa Ana Corrales Tejon San Felipe
the Old Placitas in a dust-devil vision of the now in
the now on the side of the Mercantile a twister
carrying on into the night
drink up read poetry at the Wine Festival
and the he & she of the words of art creations are on velvet of silver & iron
tortillas of gospels of the new post-multi-sequential
post-big bang theory realized in Buddhist actuality
of now, what lovers on
the sides of the mercantile walk in
flowers of graces towards the front doors.
We have vacated the land of too many people &
the land can come back again to lead instead of follow
lead Earth instead of follow, vitamin pills
of the future contain dirt &
getting our hands back down into the orchids we grow
the everything we did we did again
affordable housing & affordable
The he & she of the new presence never ignored again
rocking/walking in the doors and off the walls
into the room of the computer garden turned back into earth
I am you & he & she
stepping down the ladder of the economy
back into the helping older community
who are we to deface
all that came before us?
Who are we to change
the rock art of all that came so slow before
purposeful steady & alert & possibly fast
dancing flute players with rock hard
soft mounds of the oceans & mountains of breasts
in the corn/oats/all-vegetables especially tomatoes
& chile & butternut squash maidens just
our wives our husbands
all our children deserve a flowering of the arts
that interject reality with the fantasy of truth.
The gods & goddesses are now those people
who connect with their past.
The Gods & Goddesses are now those people
who connect with their path.
