/// cantos de àjẹ́ ///


EN LA CUEVA

black sails fly the ship breathing out fire in the cooling coos of the river. one uglied storied bird, neck coral, is chewing images to digest into words.

sense cents count too many unnamed.

you are the rebirth vulture spirit cleaned a path for. the one who will free our bellies up from silent rage. we dreamed and fed on the spark of rebellions. tres ojos wept our bitter tonics for desires unexpressed.

we now enter the depths of the caves _ again _ to pick up our power and reemerge with gold dripping from ori. oh daughter, water is born from your well.

awó, compartimos otra vez.

let them drink light.

at the source of all knowing, with the ever pregnant unknown.

BEFORE SUNRISE

dam all the fish that can swim to you. dam all the fish gracing the depths of larynx cervix. mouth. asses. los muertos say i carry the stories, but I’m not meant to stay with them down en la cueva. the other side isn’t a side at all.

memory is a house. monte y rio.

mami is a cuervo.

she stores painful jewels in her bellies. lifetimes spent between endings and beginnings. las mujeres feliz lloran rios de melaza. between salt and sand. entre las manos que limpian el cuerpo sagrado. estamos aprendiendo el nombre que llevamos.

mami cuervo offers up a gem. a gift for working in the dark.

DAWN.

flooded. an unflinching break that isn’t a hault.
but a haul. ing.
the one who is tasked with remembering.
feeling. alchemizing.

gushing cracks. tasked to work the craft of creation.

hands brilliant with new suns.
howling.

mouth swelling with lavandula menstrum. roaring. y the cave enterings. diary entries.
dysenteries, lest we let the world know without fear. be it a witness.

you placed us right here. to soak it up. where could we go if not here on this island of our making.
dumb. no tale this park doesn’t close.

MORNING SKY

bring your gold. pick up your power.

about

PrieSTusSSY New York, New York

PrieSTusSSY is a musical project by artist and curanderx Catherine Feliz. Sound is an intuitive medium for this liminal being to receive and transmute tonics for healing their ancestral lineages. "cantos de àjẹ́" keeps Taino and Yoruba creation stories alive with visceral visions of caves, wombs, vultures, and dark matter. They have been loving and raging in Lenape territory (NYC) since 1992. ... more
