The Ten
Commandments
of Creative
Women

Reversing Adam

I'll walk in moonlight
Unnaming things,
Take the burden of that ownership
From the slender necks of --
And let them stand straight,
reaching for --

All I've unnamed will unblame Eve,
For knowledge,
For good and evil,
For eviction.
For birthing us into a world
Of Bombs and Babies
Of Earthquakes and Breezes . . .
For expelling us from the confines of Eden
From the safety of Eden
The naming lost our Eden.

In unnaming will come unownership
The unnamed, unburdened by words,
Will sing universal
Will pray without ceasing
Will know the eternal . .
Answering, I am that I am that I am,
And in this act,
To spin the world,
Reversing Adam.

Les Condamnees by Nelly Chiclakova

"Les Condamnees"
By Nelly Chiclakova

     

Doris Dooley writes: "I write poetry, short stories, essays, editorials and something I call storms-on-paper, which are my version of morning pages. I love to write novels best because I never want to say good-bye to my characters; short stories just leave me lonely. My first novel, HEARS THE WIND won 1st place in West Virginia Writers YA category in 1995. It has been accepted by Mt. St. Press for publication in summer of 99. I'm in a writing family, with my husband and three daughters who also write. We're members of WV Writers, Appalachian Writers and WordJoy Writers. Writing is my religion and a habit I wouldn't break if I could. It helps me find all I need for my journey."
