Sage Sweetwater bringing you the Upper Tier in lesbian poetry

there were few women
left standing, the firebrand
homeless, crouched on the
curb, dipping her fingers in a
can of fruit cocktail, spousal abuse
written on the blurb on the back of
that can,

I saw her standing there,

I looked at her, she looked
at me, "honey, come with me,
around the corner, where the
pink walls have greenback labels
on caviar, pink champagne, and green
felt blackjack tables,"

Madam of the legalized Elko
Cathouse used her proselytizing
charms, to hook me, then Waddie
Mitchell cowboy poet's voice, "When
They've Finished Shipping Cattle in the
Fall - "

I made the better choice,

credit card in my
purse, Madam's Chanel
No. 5 led me around the
corner, "come on in, sugar,
I'll assign you a room you'll
never forget, silk sheets and a
cat o' nine for the men who pay
to keep them in line,

I saw her standing there,

Madam of the legalized Elko
Cathouse used her proselytizing
charms, to hook me, then Waddie
Mitchell cowboy poet's voice, "You
Haven't Sold Your Saddle Yet - "

I made the better choice,

instead, I walked through
the door to my independence
at the motel behind the legalized
cathouse, no battered women's shelter
in sight, "no visitor's in your room!" the
male cashier said to me - already black
and blue, self-confidence bruised, humiliating
thing for him to say to me, the whore insinuation,
then Waddie Mitchell cowboy poet's voice -
"Judgement Day - "

and then I hear Johnny Cash,
Ring of Fire,
Firebrand Lesbian Novelist,
written on the blurb of the book,
I made the better choice...

Madam of the Elko Cathouse
used her proselytizing charms,
to hook me...

Copyright July 4, 2007 Independence Day Ms. Sage Sweetwater, firebrand lesbian novelist

this is a real event in the firebrand's
past life - she lived in Elko, Nevada
for a brief time where she was greatly
influenced by famous cowboy poet
Waddie Mitchell who lives in Elko,

Evolving our Vision...

Excellent piece of reality from Elko, Sage and yes, she did make the right choice. Interesting that even at the very moment she walks through the door into her own independence, presumptuous caveats are flung at her by the insensitive idiotic male cashier. -so typical of life in a "man's world."

Sage you have certainly "Lived" and "Learned" is shows in your work. A fascinating memoir.
Reviewed by Nicky Goodman 7/8/2007
Hi Sage - a defining moment indeed, and an inspirational write, when judgment day is every day, and every choice makes 'reality', defines our moral and purpose - i like how you use repetition to review, and bring to present - the blurb on the can and then the novel, visualization positive - a poem from the Sage, clear that the choice that day, and a whole lot more since, that, 'I made the better choice' - great poetry, happy Independence Day...s Sage - your poem with that title was also a great read - Nicky xx

Sage, this really moved me, Darlin... what a story... WHAT a defining moment. You made your better choice indeed and, Honey, you will ALWAYS, ALWAYS have control of your saddle!! THAT will never leave you!

Waddie Mitchell cowboy poet's voice, "You
Haven't Sold Your Saddle Yet - "

I made the better choice,

Those words of yours will be engraved on your personal wall plaque in my heart forever. THIS is what the name of Sage Sweetwater means to me.

And thank you for copying the Charlotte Mew poem onto Burning Birches... You are such a Seer, Sage... I had scanned some of her work that very afternoon.... !! :)) Love, Kate xx

The first rule of psychotherapy:
Know thyself.

The first rule of self-determination:
Have the courage of your convictions:

Sage, you made the better choice!

I admire an honest woman who knows and chooses what she wants.
