Find the magic - poetry
FIND the MAGIC
Find the Magic As you announcement old oppression Come out of hiding And see the stars
Find the Magic As you expose the pain Let the tears flow And find beauty in your body
Find the Magic As you scream from the beating Run from the threats And feel the affection of a hug
Find the Magic As the diminutive girl is silenced Told she is too smart for her own good And she finds her place of honor as she speaks her mind
Find the Magic As the ghosts creep into dream Haunt your daily life And you meet them at the crossroads and move on
Find the Magic As you drift out of your body, avoiding the anger Observe the separation And you join the body temple once again to celebrate in this exclusive wonder
Find the Magic As you snoop to the conflicts and Watch in horror And emerge from the water whole and charming in a rainbow of colors
Find the Magic, For you are whole once again

Daybreak at Pikes Creek [a Poem]
Daybreak at Pikes Creek [Summer of 2005]Daybreak by Lake Superior Rising out of the woods like: A swamp mist I'm ahead of you for breakfast(at the B&B) I pace the grounds The scent of green shrubbery: Trees, flora, flowers-rain Intoxicates me- Branches like big brown arms Descend? The embankment, to the right Blue eyed, like mine-reflect From the creek beneath me (my wife says 'be careful' she went to get the camera) The greens and blues touch My face and blue jeans- Reflections mirrored like Musical notes of a symphony (I'll see them later in pictures) For now, it's daybreak In Minnesota.#813 8/26/2005Note: the author, Dennis Siluk, took his wife Rosa [me: on my birthday] to Lake Superior, this summer, and I recognized the leading lake in the world.
Like a cat I slumber, wonderfully unencumbered, Through eighty per cent of my agreed span, Occasionally awoken, when difference of opinion is spoken, And I concoct a different cunning five year plan, Lately it was pensions, that were being mentioned, So I on loan from the French and Robespierre, Scrap all that went before, saved by tooth and claw, And let my all equal Citizens appear, Currently it is time, for me to be in my prime, For there is an added ballot vote looming, I have to arrive on the scene sincere, for part of this appearance year, And confirm all and sundry that the whole thing is booming, Never mind authoritarian quotas, Ive imported multitudes of voters, And told them which party let them stay, Though Ive rigged the postal vote, and defamed each one of note, You never know what might ensue on the day.So to be on the safe side, I swallow all my pride, And allow my citizens to hear my blessed voice, And roll out the charade, put on the facade, And even make have faith in they have a choice, Next time about the crown, will be compacted underground, House of Lords and Lord Chancellor history, With the other Chancellor gone, I alone will soldier on, Yes, then there will only ever be me, Ill hold elections for you, as all dictators do, And fill positions with those that oil my palm, As for civil unrest, there is constantly house arrest, Or clandestine captivity for those that mean me harm.
Contract of Death [Now: in SPANISH and English]
Contract of DeathI heard today, the holy woman say: "Daniel has warned us long ago, Of the trials and troubles we Are now facing, with our foes?"He says the 'Antichrist' was now In Europe crying: 'peace,' and the 'Axis of Evil,' had previously placed Hidden Atomic Russian weaponsUnder our feet, here in the good Ole heart of the United States; 'Palestine's cry for peace,' he adds, Is a burdened Gun for Revelation 3:10;America.

Breathing-in, Minnesota [a poem: now in Spanish and English]
In early fall, in Minnesota, the rain falls, falls, In buckets, buckets and more buckets-: drops Likened to music from its many streams-land Of ten-thousand lakes; moistened gravel, gravel Everywhere?Grandpa sits on the porch-daydreaming of, of Something, conceivably frost about the corner-; As the flies disappear, with the mosquitoes? Leaves will soon vanish, dark will come earlyMaybe he's idea about summer: miles and miles And miles and miles of cornfields; his childhood now Long gone, he hums a hymn, a song; looking at the Metal-piped fence, he made, with three poles, on the Embankment, chief up the steps to the porch; It's worn-out like him.The winds in Minnesota smell fresh, fresh from all The foliage, there's a lot of it.

Uamaks River [suspense: now in Spanish and English]
Delicately, my mind was selecting a barely audible tune, out of the dead dark empty space surrounding me?I saw a shape on a rock, not sure who it was; I had a sensitivity though, a atmosphere call it, or second-sight; I've heard that before, not sure if I want to put a lot of confidence into it, but so be it, the sensitivity and lack of feeling was there. I didn't' sense any likelihood in the moment, in the moonlit figure, session on the rocks, lurking, looking out into the deep.

Antidotes for an Alibi
Amy King's first full-length collection, Antidotes for an Alibi, insists that we appraise the not to be trusted clarity of our procedures and the goals that motivate us. How does one essentially get from "A" to "B"-and is there ever especially a "B"? What color is the white space amid "A" and "B"? Upon more rapidly inspection, appear realities bare themselves to be permeable and fragile, covered with textures and grains that lead the eye on unreliable pathways.
Three Poems and Paradise Lost [One for Hell, One for Heaven one for an Inca King]
The Fast-moving water of HellHell's furnace- Likened to a chimney Vomits her torrents Of flames- Into the air Through earths crust And the earth's trembles-!Agitated, she projects A thick curtain of smoke To heat the feet of those Who provoke her every wish. Like molten iron She waits for the soul(the moment) Then molds, into her enclosure Human serpents? Out of savage flesh!No storm, no struggle No eruption, no typhoon, Just a terrible phenomenon, Hell is accomplished of producing; And upon death, Back into the Abyss They melt!.
