My Internet Writing Life Motto is-
My internet writing life motto is-
Keep it poetry and poetry shall keep you.
Short Bio Hazard:

I have to take the road that Bruce Lee
took towards the Martial Arts, as an
analog “Like water”.
I take the Literature Arts of Poetry.
In the beginning I used free verse,
swift rhyming, lyrical, metal-rap-groove verse
with definition and aggression.
Now, I try different systems,
in all genres, as always,
and put them to my personal use.
Furthermore, put to use what is useful
when needed, and reject what I don’t need
at the time for a specific write.
Using no specific way, is the way,
I am the way I write, but keeping in mind,
the tools at hand. No limitations as the limitation.
With all poetry styles ( trapping, and grabbing)-
(mind locks-heart locks-spiritual locks-)
Honestly expressing oneself is difficult to do:
The poet, the creating individual is always
more important than any style or system.
Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless,
and add to what is your own.
I write my own interpretation of poetry.
Concepts behind concepts.
Dedicating to creating
creative new-original thoughts, and poetry.
I write with one hand,
but if I could write with the other,
at the same time, a different poem,
that would be to break boundaries.
As asking multi-tasking: Poetry styles separate poets.
Style is a continuous growth.
Poetry skills/tools are weapons and you have
to use all of them, to incorporate all styles.
(Move all parts of your poetry)
Put everything into it, all energy.
Rest then progress.
A true poet is constantly growing,
and when he or she are bound by a set of styles,
or a way of doing things, that’s when he,
or she stops growing.
To reach a reader you have to move
to them, advance, and retreat- advance retreat,
furthermore slide and step back, push,
and push back, circle them
( put the reader on defense),
and close them in, and hit them
with the best closure.
Poetry is like water, flexible, it has to go somewhere..

I believe in her, and I believe she can be anything she wants to be.


Treacherous urges steadily spur
on this dreadful adventure of what we lure!-Poem Madversity…
In the Poets’ hood keep the Poets’ eye-
For a good Poet shall never die! Poets of Blood &c &c

The great tales of of Africa meet the great literatures of the world: that is how this YA novel can be described. Can one imagine a situation in which the setting for The Little Prince becomes a setting for yet a narrative, and the Groke of the Moomin tales becomes a protagonist in an apocalyptic war? In plot movement, the animals journey from Africa to the Arctic circle to visit one of their friends there, but they find him buried in ice. Something terrible has happened to him and is about to happen to the whole world too. Can these braves join together to avert the catastrophe? This is indeed a unifying super myth touching on all the great myths of the world from ancient and contemporary Africa, Europe, America, Asia and the Bible.
It is a tale of war adventure, mystery, quest, romance and philosophical treatise all rolled into one. It is rich in themes that are of interest to young adults, like love, adventure, friendship and cooperation. Moreover, all the great tools of literature have been used to give this story a unique power and wit; poetry, drama, philosophy, life strategies and love of nature suffuse its plot.

a screenplay #X

by John E. WordSlinger

A corrupted town ‘Coltsville, Illinois, U.S.A. involved in illegal teeth commodity trading, and silence is the only way to stay alive.


CHINESE MEN, opium drug lords,
MATT HEMINGS, a mix breed, with auburn hair, and hazel eyes. He be Irish and American Native, although a red, white and blue just do the right dang thing will you kind of man, and he’s a Great Spirit fearing man. People seemed to be afraid of his intelligence, the way he carries himself they’d say. He’s a book and dirt road smart person, of course, he’s a Wappelo-Hillbilly, and a new dam Yankee.
ASHER TOWNS, local contractor and lawyer. A solid man, clean cut, blue stern eyes, a glimpse of him you could tell, the man mastered the measuring stick, and a master of tools. As MATT looked at him, ASHER combed his mustache with his fingers, and then one knew, ASHER knew mankind, and mans laws.
BARBER LEWIS KELLS, a tall man, with a long face, and pouchy lips, furthermore his hair be red, bushy on the sides, and at top, his hair recedes, and his brown eyes were unlike any other person with brown eyes.
MRS. ELIZABETH GREENWOOD was THOMAS GREENWOODS wife, and he be the towns banker. The U.S.A. Banking officer. She be beautiful, with brown eyes and hair, that was always kept up, and pinned back. She be a trivia type of lady, everything touched her.
CHRISTINA BURZ, her hair braided beautifully like no other, with two rolls rolling back down the middle, way past her shoulder, and the sides of her hair be tightly pulled to the two rolls on each side. Her dress stopped above, covering her breasts and that was as high as the top of the dress went. Exposing her smooth skin, shoulders, and her luring neck.
BLACK SMITH FRANK LOCKWOOD, a blacksmith. He be a tall handsome man, with long dark hair, blue eyes, and a mustache that tops a smile that makes everyones day for them.
ELSY WHEELER, a seamstress. She be tall, with short dark hair, and deep dark eyes, furthermore held a stern beauty.
REX ‘SPLINTER’ WATERS, a short haired, clean shaven man. His stare was always the same, one brow up, that eye was his spear eye, and the other brow and eye was clearly looking directly to you, waiting for your defense. Seemed scary was fun to him.
DR. ZANE SHULE, a scary looking man,
SHERIFF PAUL WALLACE, an even more scary looking man,
HOTEL MAID MARCIA ROBBINS, a beautiful Spanish woman, curvy and short,
PRAIRIE MARY DIVIN, beautiful in every way, sandy blonde hair, and blue eyes. She was a master at accents,
PREACHER DUNN, short and stocky, full of grace,
BANKER THOMAS GREENWOOD, a typical greedy bastard, with that I can take out a bank robber look,
FARMER CLAY PEABODY, a double crosser all around,
MR. TEMPLE, a big man, & SON-BYRON, a younger version of his father,
LESTER, a crazy and smart black man,
DR. PIERRE SAPPINGTON, a sharp dressed man,
SALVADOR, a big Hispanic with a star tattoo under his left eye,
ANTHONY, a big half breed American Native and Irish man, more threatening than Salvador once one looked closer at him.
FARMER WILLIAM CALL, a family man, stern and strong,
MARSHALL SKINNER, a tall, short blonde haired man with a trimmed thick mustache, once seen one could tell he was a man whom only resorted to violence when it was absolutely essential, but to be deadly efficient in its use as a last resort,
MARSHALL McDOWELL, a short stocky man, medium length dark haired man, with a goat-tee, once seen you could tell he was a worker, maybe a forty-niner, and seemed fearless, as though he has been shot a time or two,
SAMUEL SEATON, a bright feller, a Washington newspaper man,
SHAWNEE 1 RED MOON, a tall man with a mohawk,
SHAWNEE 2 BLACK HOOF, tall and stocky, with long hair,
The Coltsville Newspaper man writing obituaries.
