:: MIROMENECATAR ::
:: THE SONG OF MIROSAI AND MENESAI ::

This text in part narrates the action in the artwork Chianum ~ Fernal Ocean Garden. It tells of the two shamanic women who live in the Ocean Garden and who are avatars of the Fernal Creatrix, and how they sang the trickster Chianuia into life through their magical movement through the life phases from girlhood to womanhood and beyond into goddess-hood. The structure of this song is unusual in that it consists of songs-within-songs, which mirror in miniature the structure of the whole song as well as the 'Thirteen Songs'.

io to sai, we two blessers,
dwell here in primordial delight,
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer,
we sing here in hidden delight

bring forth Mirosai from water drops,
tears of sorrow, tears of joy,
emerge as a moonlit-shining girl,
pour out lifewaters and sing out,
bless the Ocean Garden with your being

io to sai, I, Mirosai
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer,
forger of space with my lifewaters,
beloved of Lucaion, healer of Lucaion,
forger of love with my joy-sorrow-blessing

I will shine brightly as the Moon,
I will shine brightly as a girl,
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer
I will sense the magic in my body

bring forth Menesai from blood drops,
blood of death, blood of life renewed,
emerge as the moon-shadow woman,
pour out bloodwaters and sing out,
bless the Ocean Garden with your being

io to sai, I, Menesai
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer,
forger of time with my bloodwaters
beloved of Lucaion, transformer of Lucaion,
forger of rhythm with my death-life-blessing

I will dwell in strength behind the Moon,
I will dwell in strength as a woman,
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer
I will transform the magic in my body

io to sai, we two blessers,
converge here in primordial delight,
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer,
we unify in hidden delight

bring forth Chianuia from our song,
words of blessing, words of a trickster,
emerge as the world-creating woman,
pour out charmwaters and sing out,
bless the Fernal Cosmos with your Being

io to huia, I, Chianuia,
wild woman of fer, embodiment of fer,
forger of knowing with my charmwaters,
beloved of Metehuia, queer-maker of Metehuia,
forger of orgasm with my fer-trickster-blessing

I will enfold silently as the New Moon,
I will enfold silently as truth
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer
I will express the magic in my body

io to xin, we three truths,
complete here in primordial delight,
beloved of Afer, secret of Afer,
here we sing and sing

io to sai - "Hail Blessing!"
Mirosai and Menesai are singing
