Burn the books of old.
Let flames consume their souls.
Turn this ancient page toward Hell:
“Page Two” in the Book of Spells.

The Book of Spells | An Introduction

The Book of Spells

The Book of Spells is a series of six poems found in two of my books, Caribbean Poet & stories of a beautiful haunting | surreal.

The Book of Spells opens Caribbean Poet (a book of poems) outside of its original context. It can be read as a self-contained unit. So, enjoy.

The Book of Spells originally appears in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting | surreal. Currently, stories of a beautiful haunting has two-to-four parts (I’m not sure how I will break up the story). It’s certain that it will be divided into at least two parts… stories of a beautiful haunting | surreal, and the second part which is the prequel: stories of a beautiful haunting | genesis. At some point in the future, I plan on translating my fiction into Spanish, too.

–Luis S. González-Acevedo

Page Five

I.
Prince Connell’s Grave

…protected by Prince Connell’s
Grave. The love & lust of lovers’ fate
severed by an ocean –the Book of Spells may save.

II.
Stonehenge

…Stonehenge, megalithic echo
of heroic stories, songs and our immemorial past.

Among its magic stones recite
the final verses in the Book of Spells inscribed.
The wonderlust of love ignite
for those in love and severed by the sea’s divide.
