an excerpt from my encounter with a so-called "mad-woman" in Tucson, hiking the dusty roads of Arizona . She introduced herself as Rose the so-called mad woman . I shall carry her with me. Rose .


they called me the river of silence , but I was ruby red as a wild rose




is madness the profound happiness
expanding the cognizant intelligence ?

are the words of the great secret only the nubian light of a fable?
in exploriatum


is my tale only given the credit of my second great being?

and is the only sound daughter of my mother , born without the sunlight making the pattern of the fools age and the multicolored grass?



they call me the river of silence , not arousing the smallest murmur from its bed

motionless I lay in my contempt

channeling into the bed of pebbles on the bottom

beneath the sprinkled yellow buttercup


smoother than any vivid brilliance was my muteness


sovereign was my ruling
of every word
they juiced out of my starshaped lips


tamed only by the ruby red glowingbirds haunting the villains poking my crimson voice with their thorny sticks

never did they find a heart

only terror by the banks of my entombed scream





.

Ok Lourdes love, I will see you at the synchronised swimming club next week same time- I will wear my lucky Y-fronts - and you wear your U-fronts!
I will have to sit out the fast ones as my wheel chair snags on the bottom of the pool and coming up for air in the deep end bit is becoming a bit of a bind.

Lovely!

But what the hell were you doing in Arizona? - I thought we were going down to play bingo down at the OAP club!

I had my wheel chair ready and my lucky Y-fronts on all ready for a swinging time !!!
