out of her mouth we learn to speak

The Goddess arises from the desert
fertile with green memory.
She carves the hieroglyphs of future souls.
Mixes our dry earth with Her saliva
remodels the ancient myths into figurines of power.
She sculpts idols of Herself
as the Mother and child.
She speaks through Her images
to those who can read their own runes.
She offers palm fronds of presence
the living flower of Her desire.
