The Flip Side of Venus

Eternal Flame © Catherine Rutgers 2012No, I’m not the goddess. I’m the dipsy doodle in your onion dip. The one who startled your mother when she looked in my mirror and recognized herself for the very first time.

I’m the one who stood on the corner and let the four winds scatter over Main Street, ran to the corner and 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, who runs to your bedside to watch you shiver with fever, makes the green blades of grass pierce the last snow of winter. I’m the one who 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.
