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.
I am a nation of conquerers
not the meek or the mealy-mouthed
American from all the
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
