Poem… hypocrisy in america

Peace is the answer. hypocrisy in america is not meant to justify violence, but to condemn the country’s greater hypocrisy. Peace is the answer.  –L. S. González-Acevedo


hypocrisy in america

–june 2, 2020–
springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

in 1776, the riot was white
and called “revolution”
but when the plight
has color, the fight against oppressing institutions
is called “riot”
when the struggle is white, its warrior is a patriot
and an anthem is worshipped that reads:
perilous fight, bombs bursting in air –the poem proceeds:
their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s
pollution… the glorification of violence without regrets
when an act of protest has color, it’s a crime or treason
a president threatens the people with military action & prison
should we celebrate the fourth day of july
when the colorful are excluded?
a rational reply…
what exactly is to be celebrated?

hypocrisy in america will appear in a future book of poems & stories–

(release date | July 2021)

anomalía temporal

–1 de junio de 2020–
springfield, ohio

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

no fui del pasado cuando fue presente
el tiempo me dejó desatado
al pasar, el ahora libera repelente
el desprecio del tiempo llega agravado
el futuro quiere absolutamente nada al venir
con sonrisas y traición
fue, es y será mi porvenir
ahogado en un beso temporal tou aionos ton aionon

nota: “tou aionos ton aionon” (τοῦ αἰῶνος τῶν αἰώνων) es una frase griega que es traducida “por los siglos de los siglos” en el Nuevo Testamento, Efesios 3:21


anomalía temporal será publicado en un libro de poemas e historias en julio 2021–

temporal anomaly

–may 31, 2020–
springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

unowned by past when it was present
time left me unbound
in passing, the now releases its repellent
time’s disdain abounds
the future wants nothing as it comes
with smiles and treason
i was, i am and will be lost to all or some
in time’s mortal kiss tou aionos ton aionon

note: “tou aionos ton aionon” (τοῦ αἰῶνος τῶν αἰώνων) is a Greek phrase translated as “forever and ever” in the New Testament book of Ephesians 3:21

the problem

–may 30, 2020–
springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

many think themselves
more than they truly are:
an illusion that’s as real as elves
others think themselves
the lesser, a disillusion that leads them far
from their innate potential
sadly, few realize what they are
what’s real & special:
…to understand one’s self
the latter are the solutions
to the problems of the former
and their delusional notions
based on self-deception & disorder

the problem will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2021)–

el problema

–may 8, 2020–
springfield, ohio

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

demasiados se estiman
más de lo que son
y con tal ilusión engañan
otros se consideran
menos, y con tal desilusión
su potencial aporte como cadáver entierran
lo triste es que pocos reconocen
su propia realidad:
los que a sí mismos se conocen
estos últimos son la solución a la dificultad
del problema que los anteriores componen

el problema será publicado en un libro de poemas e historias en julio 2021–
