PRESENTATION OF THE GODDESS

for Ned Sublette January 1977


(Enter, drunk old woman with snakes in her hair.)

Turboiled aura. (Rocks head back & forth.)

Myth! (Laughs. Touches hands to ears.)

Tire scene! (Blows thru circle of first finger and thumb.)

Tire scene myth donuts asleep by the fire. Direct dispensation. I will cover you when your life is over. Bombed, stoned-out scene. Scene for the spleen. A monologue, a dead dog.


One hand two hands. Adjust & shift her carriage. Whumpwhump groundhog, oh ground hog. Snicker & grin. Dead pan. I dug down & I didnt dig deep. I did what I did to shower. Showers. I am a man. I am. A man. Malehood. Snapfinger. Unde unction. Dire class drama. A woman too but not admitting it.

(Holds up left hand.) (Holds up right hand.) (Adjusts steering.)


Never no never no no not admitting it. I am. Domino rag. Ole toothsome. Snicker nicker. Pulse fuck. Ezra Pound is a deed of lifting sorrows standing in the rain. Umbrellas are lifting spit. I carry one, open one to sit under your rain, You the unmentioned audience you the unremembered audience.


You have been befuddled & mystified too long. We are all representatives of the Legislature the legislatures of womankind, I am a man. Unacknowledged. Un. Ac. Knowledged. By the plants we start a brew. Circumcision is popular, too popular. I am your queen. Queen Mildred snapping unctions, tight fidgets. Snappy regards. Regards to nation, P.U. Old football players will not die theyll just keep on farting forever. I've got you in my shoes. Dont count on me tomorrow.


I am your muse for your rules, your rules. You are my master, you ruler you. (Kisses hands to the audience.)

You ruler, you. Find me a blue bird & I'll sing you a song. (Claps hands & dances.) (Clap clap clap) (Clap clap clap)

All for you. Whistling doodads for my heart's been broken all too long.

(Clap clap clap)
