The Flip Side of Venus

Eternal Flame © Catherine Rutgers 2012No, I’m not the goddess, just the flip side of Venus. The dipsy doodle in your onion dip. I’m the one who startled your mother when she looked in my mirror and recognized herself for the very first time. I stood on the corner, let the four winds scatter over Main Street, kept the train from escaping its tracks.

Three Iron Stairs © Catherine Rutgers 2012I’m the one who told the baby bird to jump out of its nest. When it still couldn’t fly. Ran to your bedside, watch you shiver with fever. I’m the one who made the green blades of grass pierce the last snow of winter. Had you howling at the sky when there was no moon.

Happy Halloween, y’all, with many more to come, and may all your personas be captivating. Love, Cat

  2. Thank you, very much, Mr. Turbojet!! The idea had been floating about for more than a month, and it was lovely to finish before the witching hour of the last day of the tenth month.
