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.

To My Gentle Readers:

be you in the bronx, or santa cruz, uniontown, or richland, woodland park, 
the netherlands, calgary, laytonville, ann arbor, kennewick, 
gulf breeze, baden, vancouver, banská bystrica, columbus, pleasanton, tokyo...

  i want to say thank you to those of you who check back. 

 i dedicate this installment of Music What Kicketh Political Ass to you, audience 
fit though few, from this poet and nascent blogger, 
from this scholar and ceremonialist, 
from this little girl from the bronx 
(hey bronx! say hello to Poe's house, 
eat some pizza, ride the  Lexington Ave Express for me, wouldya?)

Let's hope we all make it.

Be seeing you.
