Transcript r women of the dream we are sometimes of Silence and then again we shake the mountains till its rattle is heard three encampments away our most difficult job each day remembering who we are women of the dream we pull the drum skin tight we make our feet ready for the long dance into the Future: oh! this dance always over the abyss some of us will not make it some of us will not make it each Spring then we will return to this cliff-edge tossing fresh flowers to their sun-lit bones and our daughters and their daughters, and their daughters will return each spring wailing our losses celebrating our ancient griefs each spring then we will let them know the dream was worth it as their bones whiten the purest alleluias of hope —martha courtot Totsie the last time we met the moon was small pale and still dropping behind clouds tonight she is half-full my pain too is at the ha If-point soon it will swell, round and burst then i will cover myself with darkness name myself New-Moon Woman and slip silently away away farther than even you can see —martha courtot Page 12 February 1978 HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH / am far from home menstrual i can feel the blood rising up my spine but if i paint a red crescent on my forehead who will there be to touch with their fingertips gently the soft places to heal? this is the meaning of leaving the loss of distinctions fine as winter rain there is no one to see me here at home we share a tribal language now i carry it with me into the streets, cities, and hills sytables nested in bones they continue to speak themselves out of a need to be heard i am far from home caught in a damp cold the women here are alien more distant than the future they tremble on menstrual last night i dreamed badly awoke to darkness and rain today i will paint a small red moon on my forehead i will carry myself through the stillness of alien lands surrounding me breathing them in like air the women i love the children i love full-energied doing their tribal dances through the beats of my menstrual flow —martha courtot Martha Courtet red fox in a green wood on an autumn night and the moon rising this is my life now: a mountain woman of my time my hands learning the scent of berries my eyes narrowed by split horizons seeing everything in circles do you see me changing? do you see me coming toward you? slowly a woman of my time and i am wearing a beautiful face all this rising and falling the stars rising and falling round my head they snap in my dreams someday i will touch you a red fox on a lonely road into the pines into the risings and the fallings into the stars we will all go together v/omen of our time warriors rising and falling stars —martha courtot the woman who would decorate a tree for something wild is herself a little wild thing chewing on the edges of things she acts human boiling the water for tea or re-settling the objects in a house she seems human but she walks like an animal at night in her dreams she remembers comes to the tree to feed and nibbles the fat of death hanging on she is a solitude of graces —martha courtot graphic/Charley Kubricht HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH February 1978 Page 13
