Stone beds [a poem and an advance] - poetry
Advance: after the great flare-up of Pompeii's adjoining 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 conceive of what the ancestors went by means of (none, not one anyone survived). I can only guess from the looks of the city today, and in its early excavations, its colonize were baked alive or asleep, like pottery. In many cases, beds were twisted into stones. I have been to Italy twice, and Pompeii, most be the most furious archeological sites in the world.
For those not customary with Pompeii, (the city, for there was also a Broad-spectrum in the Roman Army, called Pompeii, whom gave his name to the city), for those folks, let me clarify: just the name stimulates deep slurs if not down right lurid emotions.
Pompeii is located by the Bay of Neapolis. The time of the eruption, was A. D. 79. Pompeii, was a choice city, as you might think of Los Vegas. It was the Roman Empires richest city, with deluxe villas, and all seemed to live a most enjoyable lifestyle. This city reminds me of the Titanic, and Sodom and Gomorra. Yes, Pompeii was a most dishonest and violent city, or town-let, as some would have it.
Skulls tainted from
Dim and faint was their fate.
The shapes of bodies?;
In clay pottery!. . .

Ballade of an Inca King
Ah! Leave the gold, wealth and landSays the Inca King?; In Spain, they leave the full of go streets, For sail to Peruvian shores;The mumble of the gold is sweet,It glows and glistens like the sun A mountain of gold, or the grave Awaits the human, Inca-god?!Spaniards sing their songs of victoryWhere breaks the green Peruvian sea; Who now, worships the Inca King (?) Guarded after prisons doors-?They babble about his blonde ringsThey watch the winds cross the shores? They count the days that idle by, For gold they worship and will die.Envoy.

Testimony to the Night [In English and Spanish]
In the quiet of the freezing night- In its deep northern skies, Dim are the lights, in its coldEvening frost?! Even the stars of the arctic Seem without a sound stone frozen!Here, here is where you find Peace and the beast within-! Remote, no ears or wordsTo encumber the mind To ensconce the throat; Here, here is where you die?(for a moment).Here, the sky has eternal eyes Eyes with cosmic tides Tides that never rest: they warWith the Universe- Likened to a dark deep abyss; Endless and never resting?Here my eyes seek and search In countless hours, ebbing and Sweeping the heavens aboveNumbing, changeless- Are the cosmos, the heavens? Here resides a astonishing peace?Here, resides a alien peace With an army of stars to defeat Shinning, noiselessly in the darkThe ebbing, eldritch dark; Time has no bearing here, Here, resides a strange, peace?Cold and oddly numb are my feet, As I look up, upon the many bridges One star bridging the next-as if,If Kings and Queens were Guarding them-the Hosts- O-Yes! A strange, astonishing peace?Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee Flaming, blistering firmaments-ye, Ye, prompt me not, of the wars I left,Of the foes, divine immortals?The enemies that never rest Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to theeI hear music, harmony from afar (there) There are storms buried in a storehouse, For tomorrow-war beyond, beyondOrion's dust?perpetual dust; There, there the sun is dim to bleak.

Chan Chan and The Gorriones (Two Poems in English and Spanish)
The subsequent two poems, one in English, the other in English and Spanish were done at some stage in this ongoing trip in Peru, while in Lima, while the poem concerning: Chan Chan was oriinally ongoing last year,while at the antique 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? .
A Case of The Fears
Chicken Soup is good for a coldSleep is good for the FluWhen I get a case of the FearsWhat is a anyone to do?It is not bacteriaAlthough it can eat away my soulIt is not a virusYet, it can keep me from air wholeI know what will do the trick,What will put me back on top,A great big bowl of Ice CreamWill exceedingly hit the spotThat was great and now I am doneOne bowl just won't doIf one is good, then more is greatAnd now I have eaten two.Bowls three, four, five and sixCame and then they wentI think my case of the fears are fixedLook at how my time was spentI am being paid sleepyIt is time to go to bedMy fears are no longer in my stomachNow they are in my headI close my eyes and I can be furious Fears I want to killI will do, at all it takesTo keep the monsters still.
You make me smile like I've seldom done before You give me a reason to want more and more..

I get up in the morningAnd want to stay in bedOh, so nice and warmLike fresh from the oven bread.My day is oh so busyI wish that I could stayIn the quiet of my houseIf only I could play.
