Justine Kingdon

Justine Kingdon loves words, dance, song, her three children and artistic collaboration with her beloved muses. She is working, rather slowly, on two books, and may be an accidental feminist. She sent this poem, with a letter, to Brian Tamaki in response to his claims about earthquakes. In the letter, she referred to her own prophetic vision: that the earth truly is groaning, that cracks are appearing in all patriarchal, hierarchical and power-based structures, and that there will be a further release of female potency in both genders. She ended: ‘I would suggest, Mr Tamaki, that we all apply a lavish amount of love and generosity as the pendulum swings. I would suggest, while all manner of quaking goes on, that we first and foremostly stop and take stock in our own ways of being. It is here we may find some God-given truth, tell it to ourselves in kindness and mercy, and then act upon it.’

 

What’s true? What’s false? See if you can spot the lie.
None of these are lies.
You are correct. None of these are lies. She does and she did.
Justine may be an accidental feminist.
Not a lie! This is true.
She sent ‘Dust Sermon’, with a letter, to Brian Tamaki in response to his claims about earthquakes.
Sorry. This isn’t a lie.
Justine loves words, dance, song and her three children.
No lies here.
