April the Spearfish Moon,
birds pause on a bough to listen
to her songs, river stops flowing
to hear her tune,

spawning runs, she lures
Trout Fish she catches with
her tune April the Spearfish Moon,
muskrat, beaver, water beetle, crawfish,
coot, female loon,

sugar cakes rolled up
in birch bark cones, quick
energy for being on the move
with the seasons,

snowshoe walks upon
the soul of Mother Snow,
wine-berry-colored wool tassels
on the bottom of snowshoe frame
muffles sound of crunching through
snow's crust, April the Spearfish Moon
thaws a crisp whisper juiced with lust,

it all pans out in the name
of the berry__blueberry,
huckleberry, gooseberry,
raspberry, her berry,

first-born daughters
first make blanket__on
riverbank of soon-to-be-
salmon-rich river, fabric the
color of wild rhubarb, scarlet,
passionate, April the Spearfish

ice clears, they come
from the Great Lakes,
running the rivers, fishing
run follows sugaring season,

April the Spearfish Moon,
she often mentions her lesbianism,
shadow-fringed, moss-soft, find a
woman who can be your shadow
you be hers too,

have full understanding
of her, make sure she has
full understanding of you. Watch
for leaflet three when you drop your
buckskin fringe and go moss-soft,

when this happens,
put away all that is new
and bring out some of the
old, when you have found this
woman, paint her on your oars.

April the Spearfish Moon...

Delightful... delicate and yet strong. One to roll around the tongue and savour and I think you have written about the up-stream patterning of salmon before, haven't you? I like the tenderness in this, the in-tune shadowing - especially the frisson of dropping the buckskin fringe and going moss-soft... Must be a girl-thing! :)) K xx

I have realized ,( especially after taking this as I get it) that women and my attraction to some exccerbated the unforutnate ramifications of talking myself into being gay becuase I was child and it happend so many times. I guess i mean after accpting my life having a real lie in it SOMEWHERE ; being Never with womAN SEEMED LIKE A KEY ;
now thanks to a dear friend ; A wonderful spychologist but more like my sister ; wh obelonged to a radical faminist group once has awoken in me the man who is ; I wont describe the liberation she has grantred me and though i am very much a man ;
I will say only one thing i am absolutely certan of;
Only a woman can make a man !
I missed you a great deal sage and I really hope we might talk more one day adsoon!.
be blessed
Rich Criso
