Made in the USA by American citizen/taxpayers

For clear background to read text throughout ACR, run cursor over graphics display.

Artist note: Although my dually-heraldic ancestry is mostly Black Forest teutonic, I was New England schooled and raised in-house by my British pilgrim-bred grandmother to be an affectionately admiring, French-speaking&writing Francophile performing musician -- which tween industry paid my twenty-something settling way from Boston to Manhattan!
Like most Americans, my true identity and attainments are scrupulously archived through a lifetime of official records (with the common confusion generationally of marital surnames). See personal/professional resume.

"BOOM!"--jh, 1999

I am a nation of conquerers
not the meek or the mealy-mouthed

American from all the
shivering boundaries
the best the hardest
the most worn out

I'm your end of meaning
a place where countries come
to scream the last dream dreaming
tomorrow from yesterday lied

Warrior goddess yellow red
black brown I'm unclassified
the force you never reckoned
from a sky you never tried

Blistering with burnt ideals
fathered of sterling stone
I'm the light that will not die
leading on this globe
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated...." -- Amendment IV, Bill of Rights, Constitution of the United States
