a Spectacles of Sonnets.not mere Cruelties of Survival or Disrepute of Artistic Labor.

Your poems will be of Circuses, of Clowns
and Trapeze Artists. The Lion Tamer's
Son will act as Muse. Listen when he Cries.
Remember that your own Sweet Innocence
he contains within his Eyes. Realize
you are not the First nor are you the Last,
to Perform your Role in the Amusement,
as though it were a Separate Exercise,
not the mere Cruelty of Survival
in Disreputable Artistic Trades:

The Tragic Mode Americana
The Festival of Lances, Spears, Arrows
and The Grand Finale--these Vaudeville Acts
shall conclude the Spectacles of Sonnets.

Working Hands also Speak their own Language.We are all Flowers not Children but Royals by Design

We are Flowers not Children but Royals
by Desire. Kellogg's or General Mills
American Largesse, Buffet, Fresh
fruits handpicked in Sanger and in Other
places. We are the Youth of Pomona
Place of Agriculture and of Science.
We do Give an F Yes we do do do do
to Survive and Live with Plentiful Rights
such as Freedom from our Body's Pains
and those of our families. We're the Workers
in the Kitchen and the Staffer Upstairs.
What is the Requirement for Liberty?
What Price and in what Form of Currency?
Working Hands also Speak their own Language.

El arte que los Celestes Lasos Azúles Nublan, es Poema

El arte que los Celestes Lasos
Azúles Nub-Leen, es Poema

Te soplo y te acaricio, amor
de mi alma, palabra enredada
en el arco iris, de seda y flor
fabricada. Te amo te amo.
Que más se necesita si estás
tú mi Infinito Soneto Libre
y Empasionado y Perfumado
en la manera más propio, Poeta
de principios de Fines y peces
que brillarán en Los Vasos de Atiro,
Darío, vuelva a mí que haces falta.
Aquel arte que los Celestes Lasos
Azúles Nub-Leen, es Poema.

Panoramic human Face as a Ladderand the Sound of its Engine Passing Past.

A ladder of Infinite dimensions that leads
to her Eyes and into its Pools of Suffering
with Dignity, dignity First, what's next little
Matters to her. For she is Corales,
of Ruby's Tone in her Heart as she feels
each Piece of her soul Rebuilt and Reframed.
like a White Winter Weather Flower blooming
in January on the Shallow hills covered
by a Sleek shrubby Ivy. Elsewhere where am I?
We've traveled Miles without your asking.
What happened and how did we Arrive here?
The sonnet's become a Motorcyle
and the Sound of its Engine Passing Past.

I will Represent what I can, Mamá:Another Sonnet

Don't worry I'll keep them near me, Verse Muse,
your Children will become my own to Nurse
on Rhymes Internal of Bliss, Palabra
arbalaPadam Padam alabra,
a Poetic Foreknowledge, Edith's gift
after Awl Between en Caesura--
A Bobbin to Begin with and a Thread,
a Needle or two, the Foot and the Eye,
Tension You don't Touch it, Only I can
set it right and not even the Owner of the Repair
Shop could do it, so don't even Touch it!
Technology Mother of Invention,
what can you stitch by Similitude, Words?
I will Represent what I can, Mamá

Oceanic Poeticwhat that Hydra's Gas Poisoned do we Lament, Oh My Lyre?

(Sonnet to invoke A.S. and T.S.E)

 Cinco sirenitas te llevarån~~~~~
~~~~~Those very Five Mermaids will bring you back
Let us go now you and I while the Eve-
ning is spread out against the Sky. Conchas
and Seashells, a Murky Shore, Foam,
Innocent is the Ocean that gives us Life
and where the Poets go seeking their Poems,

From the Tide Pools near the Shore, Cheloni,
Sea Turtle Grasses, delicate beyond
weakness. Softer You are than Hardnesses
are Hard. Tender Forests of Gnarled Coral,
brooks spared their Deflowering, and Muses
who Sing of Times Past, what that Hydra's Gas
Poisoned do we Lament, Oh My Lyre?

For a Beaner and a Mexican you are a Fancy Talker:Bouquet of Verses, these Cherished Flowers: A Discourse in 3 Brother Sonnets

Bouquet of Verses, these Cherished Flowers
en Cuicatl I bring them to You, Sovereign
human of Noble purpose...Are you uh
talking to Me? What do I know of Aztlan?
You talkin bout that uh, Reconquista? 
What is of more interest to me is my Free-
dom, the Right to be Happy and American
for the first Time Genuinely So, brother.
I'n no stranger to you.  I'm your Head Chef,
your Mechanic, Neighbor, Colleague
we are the same. Your indifference to me 
as a Worker reflects on you Alone.
I let it go and improved as a Man.
Take all I have. Here. So what about you?
How are you Doing? I'm anxious to Hear
what your intentions yield for you. As for
me, I have nothing left to give you,
not even one Ounce of Hate. On the 
contrary, I wish you a Civil Happy Life.
(The Perfume of Progress astonishes 
with New NeuroFlora, Thought Strata,
Milky Way, Mystery, Sky, The Great
Spirit I sense with each Breath.
This Gift of Life is Abundant beyond
Survival, beyond Futuristic 
Fascination...Wherever you are, there
is much more that Surrounds you
from Infinity ~~a Stark Cloud, a Cool
Blue Logo from a Childhood Shirt.
The Leaves of a Stem have reached 
forth with a Dose of Oxygen, a
Comfortable Substance, Your qualities
have Changed, Synthetic, Non-
Organic but wholeheartedly Human.
Human Rights to Happiness that Once
were evoked, let them Sound with new
Rhythms....This is a Tribute I offer
as a First Token of Our Defiance
to False Authority without Merit
which condemns us as Cowards and Foes.)
"For a Beaner and a Mexican you
sure are a Fancy Talker."  Cultured Words
encircled in Beautiful Diadems
of Buds that will Bloom for all Citizens.

Your First Hate Mail Letter : "I'm with Coyote and looking for More.":

~"Mississippi G-Damn," Nina Simone~

Arizona has got me so Upset
but what of California? Here we are
on the precipice of the Pacific
in our Segregated Bedroom hometowns,
Megaboom mansions on the Horizon.
Coyotes from those hills take up the Mic:
We are tricksters and running the Lotto
numbers of Humanity. When you Read
your first Hate Letter in the Department
of Ethnic Studies, what did you Expect?
You thought you were wanted here? Mailbox
of the Woeful Latina, Immigrant
Professor, what say you of such Rapport?
"I'm with Coyote looking for a Door."

When do we want it?I scream when I'm hot, I scream when I'm hot.

Observe close Up!  Flip it Over!  It walks
upon two five-fingered feet!  C'est human?
Who me, or us? She's gone looking over
her Offspring, they're some Outstanding Weasels
these Dormant Poets and their Like-Kindred.
We shall overcome! What do we want? Peace.
When do we want it? Ahorita, ya Estufas.
We're waiting since the Méndez decision
for Schools that respond to Needs of the Youth,
Dignity is essential --  All four Years
of it without Barreras Perjuicios
and Favoritisms. Watch, I'm the water
in the TeaPot, pressure in the Boiler.
I scream when I'm hot, I scream when I'm hot.

I don't pull Punches I write histories.
I don't wait at the Edge for Permission
but takes things into my own Digital

first beginning with Time Future Past
Present in Reversal at Last. My Time
is here. I'm warming 'er Up out of Sleep.

a Sonnet is an invincible artifact. Sappho’s line endured by our Calo. C/S

Dear Sonnet, why was it always your Form
I sought without seeking? It’s such a Hold-
Over so why use It you ask? None other
do I have within reach, and this one controls
my mind, my thinking, my rhyme, my being:
it is all of the Mass of an Atom, it's Oxygen
Ozone and Nitrous, a Carbon Family.  YesseY

We are at a midway point a Window
or a Mirror.  Far too long has there Been
the Sound and Reason mantra and the Drawl
of Hate it Expounds by Self-Mimicry.
We know our way around Staunch Semantics.
The Sonnet's an invincible Art/Fact:
Sappho endures in Calo, C/S.

I'm the Gangsta of Sonnets let it Ride Shakespeare you're a Fling

I'm the Gangsta of Sonnets let it Ring.
Shakespeare was a Fling. I broke it down once
and I'll say it again. I fled to your Hood
and was beaten down by a Mob of Fists.
And yet I prevailed. I gave my Grit
to your Muse that is True.  This Eternity's
a Nightmare. Long live the pentameter
of 14th Street Locos. I've seen better
times and yet I Sound Clear for the Noose Cut
through me a Tracheotomy of Rhymes.
It's forever for us? Then let it Stand.
I've prepared a Mask for Surprises: My
how I admire that Infinite Gaze
of yours Verse which is Permanently Mine.

THe NIght When Two Term Obama was Born : Hi-5's which Comprise the American Sonnet

That night 6 Pacific Time, it happened...
the Night when Two-Term Obama was born.
Soothing emotional America out
of her Manic Period, her Paranoid
era. All that's up Front without Shame's Face.
We are our own own our are We. People,
the name of the Game is Invocation
of our Own Rights to Express. Wherever
we are.  Alight! Let the Citizenry
expand. You are mine, Immigrant, Dreamer,
Gay Youth, Scientist, Mime, and Poeta=
Whoever you are, I am that too, too.
My words raise their Arms and Give up Hi-5's

His Chagrin and below that, a Lilac

I saw it Glimmer-Float around his Lips.
I believe it--he is worth my While.
Let me depict him. His Deep and Sanguine
Cheeks, a Glow like a Red Apple shining
on his Nose and a Dark rose in brow.
So they say he's ready to give Hardness
to Cries, to Chants for Social Justice, Paz....

Excuse yourself when your Bias sets In,

We know the sound of American English
And its Past. Sirs, the Ideas we Inhabit
Are dangerous to Power-Addled

We’ve been defrauded and defamed time

an Idea and again and again
see its Origin in Uncivil Persons
with Obvious influence on Properties
of Economy who mandate against
academic freedom and expression.
To the Students to them by a Teacher
in Chains such a minor contributor
such as Edith yes her. She’s moving On
No retreat for a Poet is Possible

to be Free of  your Oppressive Suckling
mad Worm of False Promise which
grants Honor and Fresh Prey for piteous Dicks
of Sexual Predation time and again.--

the Sonnet of tens a TearDrop moistens.

Where do I find your Muse, Mule of Form?
Labors of Painstaking Melodia?
The stem is a Ladder, the Blossom-Touch
that Runs Forward for the Caress of Gaze.

Beauteous Herbs that were singed by the Blare
too soon did they Climb while they still had Sheaths
for skin and not yet their Full Color....Dead
Crumbled and Seeded where they were Splattered.

The first fruits of Knowledge leached in the Brine

whatever other quality it lacks, is vernacular ralucanrev. SHake Shake

  Thank you for your sage words. X, I found your sonnets to glisten by the syntax you used (of extension). It reminded me that there is moisture in our language. The shadow struck me as a darkness of a water spill.  It reminds me I am also a being of liquid. There is a book by Garcon which Catharine asked me to interpret 21st C. Ornamental Arts of Language. She helped me and made me remember not to be angry which was advice and advocacy. In sum, these dramatics seem of the import of something important we belong to....I don't think anyone can say I'm not a decent writer. I haven't had a career that has allowed it, but who does?  My muse pushes me toward philology for some tendon of thought.  This as well as what I will loosely call the strokes or contrastokes of Chicano poetry. Not necessarily dissonant at its most aggressive.  For Example kindpeople: Whatever anyone wishes to believe, this portends of a consciousness that whatever other quality it lacks, is vernacular ralucanrev. SHake Shake. Rhythms to Re-Versify.
Emily Dickinsen said it all too well: I never saw the ocean    I never saw the sea.  ---but I know how a Heather Looks and what a Wave must be.

Water is emotional

  I think of the ocean as the Poem's Interface.  Your sonnets have Filigree, as of Ornaments.

I see a road that forks ahead and end in the Mind.

The Imagination in Platform Shoes of Ciudad Juárez

There in the Centro or near it, when my Tía
had her Studio where she sewed Velvet Curtains
and her boys in their Wine Corduroy Jeans
would Swish-Swish by me, mis Primos
who have died one at a time, except when
two passed the same year, have made Tía
less Tía…..I can still remember her in Brilliant
Skirts and Platform Shoes, and cargando
con los Costales, full of gifts for me when
I was a little girl. Her power for Words known
to everyone for she spoke them with sonic
magic, each one crashed to the floor where
I heard it and I’d ask her, “Tía ,qué es eso?”
And she answered by dropping some more.

Burned Alive by Hope >Imagine< A Trope can be Useful.

Burned alive by Hope: La Esperanza
que andas mira que sí en Tacones
del tamaño de unas Lanchas y con
Moños de Polka Dots that are Raised
up like Seeds that are Inflamed by
the Force to Live, desde la Vida
hasta la Muerte. Ellos creen que después
se van a ir a verse en el Cielo. No es
Cierto pero se dejan pensar.  Tirili, Tirili

Empezamos contigo y te nos escapaste,
Malvada Desilusión de Púpiles bronces.
Ay que sí,  aquí estoy Fregando y tu andas
en la Calle. Y no me toques con esas
Manos de Fierro.  I can match that. I can.
Hope is a Needle in the Eye of Time.
Don't let another Day pass in Contempt
in your Heart if Hope is Futile in Any Case.

Only Hope can reach such Temperatures.
Only Hope can satisfy the Urge to Burn
from a Memory from long Ago, which came
from IDK Where, but there it was, A Pyre
and a Goblin decorating Dismay
go to It: The Bar-B-Q,
Burned Alive by  Hope is >Imagine<
daily Vision alight again.

I sing to my Black Sister who Tried Show meLa Lucha Continua

I sing to my Black Sister who Tried Show me
I need to be Strong.  Listen, Nina I hear
you Everyday when I play your your Song,
"I wish I knew how it Would feel to be
............Free.........The Truth alone told me by
 the Southern Girl voice of theEqual Opportunity
Commission clerk: "I see now, you got Yourself
Hurt." She heard my Blue Note. She cleared
it up:  I am the one who Hoped A Lil Hope.
Readin' Beloved, Toni Morrison's BodyGhost,
Revenge for Dangerous Hope-- Oasis
of Memory take me Home. Rebuild me
like ew. At last I sing to my Black Sister
a Song she Taught me. La Lucha Continua

The Funny Way you Confuse me with Another Latina

The funny way you confuse me with another Latina,
as if we are the same person you can't
tell apart even if we're of different
races, countries, nations, or languages--
Look at me, it's no mystery I'm Chata
with long hair and rancheras in my Dreams.
She over there is from the Caribe,
the Antilles, Rio Platense, Queens.
To you we are indistinguishable,
hard to discern, so you mismatch our names.
Here I am and my Credo, "la Vida
no Vale nada," while she's happiest
when she's dancing a Rumba. So, it stands
to reason that you fear I'm a Communist
That's not true but thanks for the Compliment.

Dimensiones de la Mente:Héroes son los que aman al Amor.

Dimensiones de la Mente
Rueda de La Elegante Harmonía
Cargadas por Luces de la Noche
Como en Juarez ~oiga Mariposa
De la Muerte, ya  EsTufas ! Vuela
regrese a tu Mundo Infierno;
Decadentes no se hasta donde
alcanzarán…Oiga, vayase a Morir
Alas de Sangre disonante. GLobulos
que Idiotas son Ustedes, Feas Nalgas
parecen Peras podridas. Merced
marca un Punto en Fin, por Su
Gracia. Había una Vez un Barco
Chiquito tan chiquito tan chiquito
Que no podía navegar. Niño de Paz
En tu Mundo sin sentido podrás
escucharle a La Pena acAbo que
Los Héroes son los que aman al Amor.

Airwaves of a Feud=Fight Club Meaning

I Elle-E-Vate you to a Poem, with Arms
held up, "Sin Justicia No Hay Paz,"Social
justice is Right not Left of Center, its Arts
of Humanity and SuperPowers
don't Fear It--Indeed, they Embrace Us.
We Mother Fuckas with Some Attitude,
Style, grace, and a Heart. We staking Out
a New Century. Come on Let's Speed Things
Up, not Down, not Underneath, off the Cliff---
No!  Not at all!  It's Preservation of Life, get a Grip
it will be Good for Your Better Fate
Mine is to UnRavel the Rhymes of Other
Makers, not Mine in my Hourly Gig
on Airwaves of a Feud=Fight Club Meaning.

Representation con Safos WTF.

No, Sir, I do not see I to I with you.
From the Get-Go you began with Cliches
such as Chicano Poetry is Crude.
Je n'accorde! What did you expect me to Say?
You want me to Agree with Uneven
statements and Unfair Authority?
Sorry, Dude, I'm a Doctor: My Sujet
comes First. Son les Mots de mi Plebe, Peeps,
students, workers. Les Proletariats?
I didn't say that! You are the one, Marxist
in a Designer Beret, Mercedes
and All. Enjoy your Status, I'm here to make
my Mark--an Accurate etaruccA--
Representation con Safos WTF.

And the Rocket's Red Glare for Sheryl and Joseph Reynoso

She wore it on her Lips when she Kissed him
just before he Left again, UP! to the Skies
where he's Flying in Blue. He's her Angel
and She, His. And the Red Glare of Their Love,
Lights the Great Flame of Her Patriotism.
She's moved many times to stay Together.
Where do we go Next and until he Returns
how long will he be Gone? Separations:
she doesn't Complain but makes Use of Pain
Searching for Beauty in its Abundance
Catching her Breath as if for the First Time
when He Arrives from the Base. This is how
her Love like a Flame that burns Day and Night
Fuels the Rocketfire of their Passion.

Speak English: The Fourteenth AKA, a Sonnet

Speak English! Some who don't love Freedom
think it Unnecessary to Read Texts 
of the American Revolution
and have many Ruses such as, No one
knows Exactly what they Meant. That's Bullshit!
Framers knew the Purpose of Poems
was to state Identity. THat Shakespeare,
there in the Globe Theatre said it Clear,
"all the World's a Stage," and wrote Eternal
Love Lines: "as long as men have Eyes to see/
so long lives this which gives life to Thee."
(I'm paraphrasing of course.) Who cares? So what?
Where you are Born is what gives you Rhythm.
The Fourteenth AKA, a Sonnet

Don't blame it all on Assange. Give him Credit I've also blown some Fuses with History.

Don't blame it all on Assange. Give him Credit
I've also blown some Fuses with History.
SheeeehS I thought that was my Job.  Come to me
but read me my rights from Edith Edith
Wharton whose Book "The Quills" my Tocaya
told it Damn Straight up Art's Autonomous
(After all, that's l'art pour l'art. My Duty
to become a Poetrical Rhyme, Nice
real Nice....Those ones who fail to Get
la Onda...Not a Choice but Decision,
an Arrangement created by my 7 Year Old
Self, "I will speak Back.  Not now for I'm Small.
When I have the Right Note and I'm able
I will Blow my Whistle Loudly for All."

Whitsleblowers Melody:I'm not a Radical just a Sonnet. Ethnic Studies Cradle to the Cane

If you are from the same country...but what
if you aren't? Now There's a good question.
Let me think About it---Okay here goes:
what's wrong with acknowledging Common
Roots? Ethnic Studies from Cradle to Grave!
This Life is All about US in our Fruitful Disguise.
We need to know More.  Such as Rotational Force--
What are its Origins? And what are Mine?
I'm Young and without a Notion of Things,
and the Everyday Changes I face.....Written
in Some Stars are Directions for me.
Is the answer in my Mother Tongue Twice
Removed...?.--Retrospect what do you Say?~~
I, Epimetheus, Remember well
my First Lesson, by a White Man, my Father:
"Do you see Rabbit Mountain over there?
If you say I can't Return, I prefer Death
for I cannot live away from my Home."
And so he also told Us,"there are Lands
that are Leased without Payment to Indians
which is Wrong.  They are losing all their Rents.
And this was all Kept in Secret until
I spoke Up." Whistles run in the Family,
and mine Sounds like this. I Sing to the Skies
for the Justice Denied and my Rhythms,
are against the Evil attacking Rhyme
for being itself, Honest and Sincere.
I'm not a Radical but a Sonnet.

Que pasa contigo Goya este Sabado?

Que pasa contigo Goya este Sabado;
how are you Doing today? Living Life
as a Gift that needs Memorializing,
documenting what's Up and what's Down ~Around~
Turn Around, look at you There, Emanations
from Sivar, Contemporary--that's Where.
The coup well that was just a Coup, well known.
(sort of Novel. I'll be Original?)
I was there on Broadway March of '06.
There just happened to be Passing by some
Red shirts Right Right There. (in the Heart of my Lens?)
It was L.A. and that's also Common
A Sigh of Relief There....There is Something--
--The Size that is Required for the Show.

Some Mixed Up Gendered Macha Rhyming SonetO

The artist knows the Unconscious now you've
been informed, my Choices were not Given
to me so I Make my Own decisions.
Without my access to Spice or to cloves,
I made Good use of Common House Flours:
You be my Frida, I'll be your Diego.
And, together, You and I will Conquer
the World we take down by all Fours,
the Ordinary Ruses are no Match
for the Muses, Ya Estufas, son Estas
Las sin Ninguna Alma ni Harmonia
no Deben ser tan Vanas a Corregir
a La Serena Palabra de una Macha
Yo s oY Calafia, Hija de Ser.

I'm Burning hot for my Freedom to Speak.

I'm steaming hot for my Freedom to Speak.
my Search for my Rhymes has its adVantages.
Drink my Word Wine, it is an Elixir
of Timely Truths that Explode, Crash and Burn.
Let's be Magnanimous suominangaM
and Reversify at Last, such Prosaic
Endurance is faltering and NickNacks
proceed by Languid Verse-Schmucking around
burning the Fossil Fuels of All Patience,
I've Preserved my Ability to Yack.
Let's dress ourselves Up in Self-possession
wearing our own Threads, Styles and Designs
It's the Sonnet's Enduring Elegance
that Lights the Flame at the End of our Dance.

These words take them and these Breaths.

Let me spill
a drop of water
on the Pan.
It its hot
It will jump into
a ball then Vanish.
Hot Tears

Hot tears that
are Bled
Ones that flow
to the sound.
of a Verse
The Muse
is Upset with Y'all
Her words are Acid
Yo comprendo.
As did the Juarense
who spoke
Ni Una Mas.

Here, take my Pen.
It was my Last
Now its Gone
if you Must
but I wish you
would Stay

Stay one more
moment. Dear
Child, Take these
Words as my Ransom
while I
sing to your Heart
you are Free.

Drop your Chains
as they say
These words
take them
and these Breaths.
Let's Exchange
on the Page.
That That Alone
should Ease us
a Bit. Come on
now Hurry Up
Open the Box
a Present to you
dear Reader
who is so Kind

in the Belly of the Aquarian Age:I think that I am an Alien Yo.

As Nina sang it (Simone) "Crawling just
Ain't my style." And it is not my Will
that defies you, it's my Cylindrical
Shape and Rhythms for they can't be Repressed.
I believe it has something to do with Birth
in the Belly of the Aquarian
Age, IDK. Eccentric's what I am.
Like Yoda, I can speak or like Edith.
Not the Quetzacoatl of Poetry
but a Free eerF an Engine of Words
that are Actions and Sounds Better than Swords
for they're a Melody from Inside Me.
Am I a Poet? I doubt that it's true.
For I'm an Alien force among you.

Health Care? we Need None said the Senator:in a verse that was written by Wall Street.

"Health Care? we need None," said the Senator
whose Healthy visage and Designer Clothing
make him Believable, a Real Smart
man. You can tell by his Manners and Voice.
He's a Big Shot in Congress who Protects
corporations from giving to Taxes.
Ya know if they Paid their Dues they would Lose
their Edge. We agree that's Free Market
good sense. Repeal Obama's Health Care Plan.
If you can't afford a Doctor, your Vice
is your Problem. We've don't have the Right
to Feel Strong. Be a Proud American.
Our Reverend says its all in the Bible 
in a verse that was written by Wall Street.

Am I the Vuzuvula of Verses.Ideas go Dead on Arrival

Am I the Vuzuvula of Verses
causing distraction to my Opponent?
High pitched are these Gold and Scarlet Letters
because they were forged in me thru Torment
as Variants on the Scream. I Defend
the People and their Imaginations.
Let me Introduce Myself formally
Here I am: Poeticus Maximus.
Ovid, whose name in reverse is a Void
cannot Compare with my Experience:
so he was in Exile, What Fortune
to be Cast Off from Societal Rule
where Ideas go Dead on Arrival

Freedom to Flow with Rhymes of all Rhtyhms: To My Studentsa Disastrous Dance Craza that won't shut Down.

Freedom to Flow with Rhymes of all Rhtyhms--
I'm telling you this. Take your Notes Joven.
If I can write Verse of One Kind, You'd Triple
me if you Tried and Quadruple yourself:
You are Changing and leading Change. Whether
you are in Science or Letters or Not
doesn't Matter which. Making Useful Youth.
Keep up what you are Doing. Inhale
the Scent of Your Garden of Life and Wealth
of Spirit. Don't give up your Civil Rights.
Keep with your Rhythmic Revolution that harms
None and Nothing and only Inspires. America,
these are your Youth and look what they're Given,
a Disastrous Dance Craza that won't shut Down.

Each word is a Pilotfire of Verse.for Life and the Freedom to Live It!

Each word is a Pilotfire of Verse.
To the four Directions, let's Serve
the Might of Voice with Notice.
We have something to say.
William Carlos Williams
would call it Savor.
Say Words with Taste.
Like Americans Should.
Quit it with Spreading
Diseases we Doctors
must Cure  While
our own Children
go without Us.
We are their
Scribes, Listen to this
Dr. Rhee, (yes like Risa,
good-hearted humor).
And don't speak of the
Heroes with
Celebration for they Seek
no Attention
save that which is Needed
for Life and the Freedom
to Live It!

My freedom with your Foam becomes a Poem.

Rockin my Poetic Fiat:  Muses,
remove those Hair rollers, release your Curls.
Just to see you Natural, Afro'd, Lacia,
It doesn't Matter which. We need Ruses
to Feed Jealous Charlatans and Bosses
They give us all Their Work and then Abuse
our Graces. Let them walk Unknowing among us
that we Record their Melodrama for our Purposes.

--Fine Porpoise if I hadn't found you Yet,
would your Migration cross my Corral Bar
in Night Spells of Oceanic Inlets
to Offer me a Ride? Your Fins are Wet.
You and I got something Good Going ON:
My freedom and your Foam made a Sonnet.

Her Beauty of which I haven't spoken conquers that of the Eternal Sonnets.

--How much more praise deserv’d thy beauty’s use
                                                William Shakespeare

First born daughter of a first born daughter,
she was made to be a Model Sister.
Take a look at her Eyes then Step Aside
because she will look back. It's her Inside
poise--an Inner Kitten--Don't try to Leash
her for you will Fail and soon Regret
you tested your Strength on her Elegance.
For I know what I'm saying when I tell
of Pride for my Big Sister Dolores.
No, she's not taking Prisoners. Farewell!
Join the Exiles of her Kingdom. No
room for Excuses, no time for Sadness.
Her Beauty of which I haven't spoken
conquers that of the Eternal Sonnet.
