Cathy Jo Cress

Carte Blanche

I feel the need to expose myself
To an alien world
To drink of innocence in a burning landscape

And pursue the tastes of different men
So thereby make them one

The triple: The child of heaven and hell
And the middle kingdom

The heroine: The daughter of Eve.

Janet Hamill
Troublante Oliphant Press, 1975
