a buried footnote,
long, silent voices
speaking to the readers
of the world,

notion of
secret knowledge
in a mass of traveling
fire, specially designed
bin floating in etheric tabloid,
floating sex scandals and lesbians
outed in the most colorful peacock
galleries flagging hopes printed in

advancing blaze,
she presses on and
a gap exists, everything
she thought she knew isn't,
the imagined West to some
is where she lives.

© Ms. Sage Sweetwater, firebrand lesbian novelist

Simply Beaudacious!!...(You leave me with thoughts of a peacock strutting it's stuff even though there is vulnerability lying deeply within the essence of this western pioneer!

Much to think about, much to remember about this poem...Of course bravo to the Firebrand lesbian novelist, my dear Sage Sweetwater!

Peace, love and light,

Another thought provoking poem Sage, the peacock has a hundred eyes, that's the legend. Perhaps that is part of the meaning here ~

Interesting, "a buried footnote" as if to imply that now is the time to resurface and stand ground...

Be always safe,
Reviewed by John Flanagan 6/17/2010
You, Sage, are that footnote, the arcane wisdom that flourishes in true fire and annealing while the world blazes on in its superficial consumption.

I am still patiently befriending some peacocks...

and your words open us to wonderful visuals
embracing too the poetic beauty of you & your expressions...

Reviewed by TONY NERONE 6/17/2010
Excellently written piece. I do not know if I have told you so, but if I did it is because you deserve it. You are a great writer.

Reviewed by Dayvid Graybill 6/17/2010
"colorful peacock galleries"? What a great fraze! I mean phrase. Or praise? No gaps here. Your words aligned in the order pre or post ordained offering tantalizing rhythm to secret knowledge and the West.

Peace and biblical knowledge,
Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan 6/17/2010
i like the feel of this, that what you believe to be true can be dislodged and then...what-a tough place to be in, i have had my ideas rocked a few times--usually it was a good thing!
