Your Covid–19 Death Wish

–september 23, 2020–
springfield, oh

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

May the universe grant you
the so-called freedom you seek.
My goal is not to change your foolish views,
nor rustic thoughts birthed by your feet.

May the grant be yours, and only yours.
And if George Washington prefers,
let him readily confer
such freedom and its idiocy,
as you bask in your delinquency
and stupidity of life without a mask.
For George, it’s an easy task.

Do you realize that we speak
of your suicide?
Your arrogance and trumpery1 at its peak…

Even more than simple homicide,
it’s the battery & murder of those you might infect.

God speaks to you, his-her-its message don’t reject:
let others live happily
with their masks under “oppression.”

But should you want to live satanically…
Well, as for you and your fetishized transgression,

por luis s. gonzález-acevedo

¡atrévete! invade mi cuerpo
y al apostar en este mundo incierto
¡celebra! confía en tu pensar inepto:
que podrás ganar si me dejas muerto.

lo que no sabes
es lo que sé por experiencia:
y aunque no te agrade
decaerás en tu inútil resistencia.

pero, aunque seas el víctor
tu deleite será efímero
y la vida como el viento.
en fin, mi cuerpo es tu féretro
y con mi entierro
comienza el tuyo.

¡dare! invade my body
as you wager… ¡go ahead!
¡celebrate! ¡believe your folly!
that you can win if i’m left dead.

what you don’t know
is what i know from experience:
after your sickening blow
you’ll weaken in futile resistance.

but even if you win
your joy will be ephemeral
and life much like the wind.
in sum, my body is your coffin
and with my funeral
yours begins.

On a Divided Nation…

It’s not a bad “dividedness” when a majority stands against racism, bigotry & intolerance. It’s actually a sign of hope. There is no negotiation to be had, no middle point to be found, no concessions to be made between what is just plain right and what is clearly wrong & evil. But talking about “dividedness” alone only obscures the true illness that afflicts us as a nation –it’s self-deceiving, self-serving, and just too convenient.

–Luis S. González-Acevedo


On Racism, Bigotry & Intolerance

Racism, bigotry & intolerance are not resolved with training, workshops, and seminars. They are willful illnesses of the mind, heart, and soul –conditions whose symptoms result in the violation of human, social, and political rights (real life consequences & effects). The true issue is whether the actions that give them expression and reality beyond those who possess the illnesses occur or don’t, are allowed or not.
