Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

A Poetic Interlude Of Surprising Relevance | By A Female Faust

A revision of last month's poem in Let's Do And Say We Did, where this Faust's verse is slowly being archived.  If you visit, tell me of which you are more fond.

This one is glossed, by popular request; I hope the notes do not interfere with the experience.

if it does not display properly (and prettily) view it here.

Be seeing you.
