Book of Spells

Page Two

Burn the books of old
and hold the Book of Spells to heart.
Delight in the burning smell
while walking into fiery Hell.
Close your eyes… And start
the return to vibrant life once your enchanted soul is sold.

Poem… Living in Death


Living in Death

(translation|modification of Viviendo en Muerte)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Inevitable destiny of rest,
release me from life and its horrors.
With daydreams, set me free
as I slumber under tulle and over felt.

Death, few enjoy your dark enchantments.
The living haven’t lived;
because for life, death is necessary.
Those who wane accept death’s somber cloak and live.

Inevitable death, touch my hardened soul
and take with you what I assume is my delirium.
What in life was dead, in death finds life…
My soul seeks exile from its body.

Night, fall upon my luminaries
and extinguish the wetting of nocturnal dew.
As my corpse dries, I will expel the souls
of demons in search of victims –other hosts.

life on hold

–july 3, 2018–
méxico city, méxico

by luis s. gonzález-acevedo


life on hold…

waste of a story
left untold.

i think… go where you want to be ¡be bold!
beware… avoid the folly
by clicking out of life’s pause and into play.

remember… perfect moments don’t exist
wishes run with slight or much delay
re$our€es merely al£ow us to subsist
the time for what matters is seldom right.

the future is guaranteed to come
believe you me, for life there’s no rewrite
mostly, it arrives when we’re undone
and the price for its grand entrance is our fine:
our breaths paid for in the currency of time.

If the United States of America were my lover…
On Lives, Guns & Violence

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

 

You promised me, my Love, when it all began:
domestic Tranquility and general Welfare.

Please don’t take a stand
with those who profit from our communities and schools in warfare!
Don’t let them misconstrue the right of the people to keep and bear arms!
Remember your promise when they ask you to protect their firearms,
and that the enumeration of certain rights
shall not deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Those other rights, foundation of our happiness,
the argument against those who would deny
that together we will always be The People

We the people
We’ve held these truths to be self-evident:
our unalienable rights,
among these Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Let your Congress fulfill its solemn duty,
and make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper.
Protect the lives of the citizens who love you truly, my Love.
Protect your children’s lives and prosper.
