I am a poet

of the lake,

poetess, actually.

My hands gather 

her fossil bones-

the calcium 

drinks my fingertips

chalking them

white with dust.

My heart is here

although storms

never come-

just rain, anymore.

What if I drank

too much whiskey

one night

and then told the lake

that I was her

poetess forever.

Would she 

reflect me differently-

a stranger forever?

Bah,

I can't care.

The storm passes us by

again

and I am still

and ever

your poetess

and stranger.

IF NOT US, WHO?
POETESS AND STRANGER COLLECTS PERSONAL CARE ITEMS YEAR ROUND FOR THE NORTHMEN DENS PROGRAM. NORTHMEN DENS IS A PANTRY PROGRAM IN EACH OF OUR SCHOOLS THAT PROVIDES FREE FOOD AND PERSONAL CARE ITEMS FOR STUDENTS WITH A NEED. PREFERRED ITEMS: TOOTHBRUSHES, TOOTH PASTE, DEODRANT, BODY WASH (BAR SOAP IS NOT PREFERRED), SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER, DENTAL FLOSS, LIP BALMS, LOTION, ETC.

OUR VISION

there has to be a place we start

somewhere we are allowed to

be curious and be curious

a place where women matter

a place of tenderness and conscience

a place for new voices and the natural world

a place whose purpose is to reveal the beauty

and magic in each of us

a place with a heart and a soul and

a mind for change

there has to be a place we start

to be the people our world needs

more healers and dreamers

more makers and menders and believers

there has to be a place we start

so let it be here.
