Sage Sweetwater, unrivaled, bringing you the Upper Tier in lesbian erotica...Sage Sweetwater, the exceptional ARTIST of literary lesbian poetic prose...


Madam Pearle DeVere's
highest-grade piece, the
whores on Sunday paid
the brothel lease...

a legacy to my
loyal fans, not to
be dictated by town
ordinance, or my words
tossed of fools' gold pans,
I looked inside the coffin;
Pearle's lips quivered, "firebrand,
take my hand - I'm not dead - do
have a look under my brass bed -
Gold Dust Woman's takin' me to that
windswept hill, Mt. Pisgah's feelin' a chill -
undertaker said I overdosed of morphine,
do have a look under my bed - pull the blind,"

1800s Poverty Gulch
renamed Cripple Creek, I
smelled Madam's perfume in 
her room, oil cloth and weaving

took the whiskey
bottle from her dressing
table, undid my gold buckle,
spread my legs, pushed it in
where her lips closed around
the bottleneck label, her last taste
of a woman, pussy leached - I let
her memory go - bent down low -
under her brass bed, Madam Pearle
DeVere's highest-grade piece, gold
dust pulpit inlaid - I carried it out and
strapped it on my burro, hauled it to church,

her girls counted
Sunday churro, Lord's
sheep flocked, Bobby Womack
put in his poker rack, chips and whore
tips stacked in the collection plate - his breath
smelled of gin the preacher grinned - I carried the
gold dust pulpit in - out the way I came in -
I carried Madam's cross, Gold Dust Woman's
takin' me to that windswept hill, Mt. Pisgah's feelin'
a chill -

Madam Pearle DeVere's
highest-grade piece, the
whores on Sunday paid
the church lease...

Madam Pearle DeVere,
of The Old Homestead left
me a stash of cash, her lips tasted
mine of sour mash...

Stirring the reader's senses, provocatively swirling.
The smell and taste of a different world, so different, it reminds me of things familiar. I love the feeling.

This is some story Sage - didnt hear the song with it yet so im hearing Little House and the Waltons right now, wondering whatever became of Nellie...:) any way, you conjure a town, a tv series would be great, and id not miss an episode so i knew better what was going on - off to the church to pay my respects anyway...fine write Sage xx
(These are your most deeply emotionally charged writes, they are very powerful and mysteriously moving poetry Sage xx)

incredible and the fleetwook mac song gave it a haunting feel-love it
Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 12/17/2007
Auh Sage! I've missed your stories of the west laced with just enouth sugar to taste sweet enough. I admire you and the depth from which you mine your words and give them birth into some of the different characters of the west to keep it all interesting and never cloned.
Merry Christmas dear lady.
Love and blessings!
