Duality


To win the wildish woman’s heart,
a mate would understand her natural duality through and through.

Anyone close to a wildish woman is in fact in the presence of two women;
an outer being and an interior criatura,
one who lives in the topside world,
one who lives in the world not so easily seeable.

The outer being lives by the light of day and is easily observed.
She is often pragmatic, acculturated, and very human.

The criatura, however, often travels to the surface from far away,
often appearing and then as quickly disappearing,
yet always leaving behind a feeling:
something surprising, original, and knowing.
