Barriers - poetry
There are many times I set up barriers and walls, invisible if you come too close, And then you hit them.
You admiration what happened.
You didn't know, I can't let you in.
I've lost the key to open the doors in the walls, and I don't know how To take them down.

Robert Burns Love Poem: A Red, Red Rose
Robert Burns, a poor man, an educated man, and a ladies' man, is agent of Scotland, much like whisky, haggis, bagpipes, and kilts. He lived a life shortened by sore heart disease, 1759-1796, but his life journey because of poverty, informal education, disappointed love, nationalism, and literary and fiscal hit can be identified by all Scots and communal men the world over.

Chan Chan and The Gorriones (Two Poems in English and Spanish)
The next two poems, one in English, the other in English and Spanish were done for the duration of this ongoing trip in Peru, while in Lima, even though the poem concerning: Chan Chan was oriinally ongoing last year,while at the antediluvian site in Northern Peru, it was just complete recently.The Gorriones of LimaIt is fall all about me-The Gorriones are swimming in the air Underneath the Lima skyAs if-, if fish could fly?Summer has gone its wayIt is fall again I say! The birds-, they just walk on byLooking, as if, if on parade-AndThe world keeps spinning;They just do not see it Until the hour comes?When the sun goes down!?When,Things get a barely dim;Yet the Gorriones keep on swimming Gracefully, swimming, in the wind-Under the Lima sky? .

So many looked to you for inspiration,Unlikely hero for the wheelchair nation.Proudly you fought and arrogantly you believed,Everyone loved you Christopher Reeve.
Three Poems: The Monkey Man of Lima, Plus Two More
What Hides at the back of the Minute?What hides at the back the minute? It seems, no one especially knows; How many times will we wakeup, To count the action gone?The rose was dead when I arrived; The sword, was rusty and dull; The display curtain was open, And there was music in the hall.Oh lovely minute, where art thou? One, is not like the other-: Whirling in an human orbit, As the infinite world discovers.
Catherine Daly reviews Antidotes for an Alibi
Amy King Antidotes for an Alibi BlazeVox Books ISBN 0-9759227-5-0 2005These poems read to me like poetry versions of flash fiction. Now, I like flash fiction very much, but I like the more fabulistic kind.
Stone Beds [A Poem and an Advance]
Stone Beds [Pompeii's surge]Advance: after the great flare-up of Pompeii's close volcano, Vesuvius, some two-thousand years ago in the glory days of the Roman Empire, what was left of the city were commonly ashes of stone from an unleashing furnace; it is hard to assume what the citizens went by means of (none, not one being survived). I can only guess from the looks of the city today, and in its early excavations, its associates were baked alive or asleep, like pottery.

Have you ever skilled love with a celebrity you know is not a good match for you? Or how about an exciting association that roots itself deep in your memory..
Poems have another cores, or so I believe, and can only be structured well for a number of metaphoric language-heart beats; like all counselors are not made for all clients, so all poems are not made for the same person, or purpose; when we read we all have our likes and dislikes; I do not essentially know what poetry is per se, but I do know what the eminence of poetry has, and great poetry is close to an illusion?it carries an echo I do believe-figurative yes, at best, and questionable yes, by far. Here are five poems I've freshly wrote, all with a altered core, focus and style.
