Key largo - frater albertus - poetry
The fans turn slothfully in front of the door
They open wide performance mangroves galore
An egret in the everglades stalks its prey
Haltingly it walks along its way
On a different cheerful and sunny day
A woman's floppy hat shades her beauty not so brittle
The glossy scarf that holds the hat flutters just a little
She pauses in the threshold of the door
Surveying what she's looking for
She is looking above-board at me
Her beauty flaunted all to see.
'Where are you from?' while noticing I had a frown
On the other couch she gracefully sits down
In the small hotel lobby bar
'A city north and very far. '
My heart begins a frantic beat
Her flush was not just from the heat.
'Let me guess? Toronto, it is pretty'
'A New Yorker?. . It is gritty. '
The open lobby with chaises rattan
Encompassed us as the hours ran
Mimosas came and drinks went
Philosophizing led us to invent
All conduct of reasons the head to spin
While we collective a exclusive grin.
A alone of depth and all through much time
When years after the furthermost crime
I returned to the lobby of that Inn
Recalling how she cooed
Remembering that exclusive mood
We never got to raise a brood
The waitress noticed as I cried
I inarticulate 'She must not have died'.
FRATER ALBERTUS MAGNUS:
He huddles over the barely bowl I've been told
He expects my arrival so I am bold
I wait in a room on the bring down floor
And admiration what's after the colossal door
I inspect its' symbols, imprinted complete
I acknowledge Bathomet down near my feet
Ptah's T-square and gargoyles replete
A 'spagyric' toque, a comfortable eye
On top the Pyramid feat for the sky,
And You might awe why, am I
Here in Salt Lake City to see Frater Albertus Magnus
The boss of a worldwide group some call the 'Magus'.
He comes to greet me from downstairs
Cobwebs hang from his hairs
His look and conduct are quite welcoming
I feel approximately like it's my homecoming
'Hello my son, you come, well recommended'
Before that night was therein ended
I educated the truth about 'the Stone'
Now with means and methods known
He told me of his looking into man's future
And we talked of ways that WE must nurture
The iron 'hot' to arrange it, NOW!
I told him soon I'd make the' Vow'!
However, an added pact I'd make
Which led my knees to ever quake
There is truth of many things
Do not worry about 'toe rings'
The twitching touches nerves absolute Can sense the earth beneath your feet
And lead you past your 'vision quest' Make you at home on Gaia's breast
'I wish you well along your WAY!'
The door he closed, I heard him say!
No, call for elixir of youth for me
No gold from lead are NEED for me I wait with all, the World to see
My 'vow' to join soul quite FREE
And all in all, LOVE with the 'World Mind'
For me - you might think is seldom kind!

Antidotes for an Alibi
Amy King's first full-length collection, Antidotes for an Alibi, insists that we analyze the misleading clarity of our procedures and the goals that motivate us. How does one in point of fact get from "A" to "B"-and is there ever certainly a "B"? What color is the white space among "A" and "B"? Upon earlier inspection, apparent realities bare themselves to be absorbent and fragile, covered with textures and grains that lead the eye on unreliable pathways.

In The Midst Of All
In the midst of darkness, there is light. In the midst of evil, there is virtue.
