Love Letters

Red Roses

THE VIRGIN AND THE PHOENIX

The quivering of sleek feathers, raven wings unfolding.

Shadows playing catch.

A virgin fire, alight.

Darkness swallows her gasps, massages her heart.

A golden phoenix rises from her flames.

The birth of that moment brings with it new life.

Love germinates, visible in the virgin’s eyes.

The raven has the grace of an angel, the cunning of Capone.

A proclivity for the forbidden.

The virgin is attracted to that.

A virgin and a phoenix share the rise and fall of flight.

They share, too, a totem. That of passion.

A virgin’s passion is her learning.

A phoenix’ passion is her surrender to his lessons.

A golden raven works in the same way.

Where there are fires and virgins and golden sunbirds, there is candle wax, ash.

There is ceremony; ritual. Devotion.

An ambient calm, and trust. Lust.

A phoenix cannot rise without a fire.

A virgin cannot either.

The stroke of a wingtip on bare skin can render a virgin senseless.

A writhing virgin can do the same to a raven.

A phoenix is freed by extreme heat. Plumes of smoke. Smears of ash.

A virgin is freed when the timing is right.

The phoenix rises, carrying her in his talons.

  1. Dear Sir:
    I would like to discuss with you about the powerful benefits of Veterans of the Vietnam War because we are the same as American veterans or so-called is like the American citizens when we were together fighting for the heart of the America policy, but you are the powerful benefits of veterans of the Vietnam War, but we are the Vietnamese paid soldiers of the America when we did not have any benefits of the Vietnam War.
    First, we have taken an oath loyalty to did not only be loyal with our American flag but also were loyal to the America Constitution again because we were duty fighting against to the communism. In fact, our enemy did not forgive you or us.
    Second, as you have understood about the laws of War Power than us, but you seemed to forget yourselves since you had taken oath loyalty under the American flag and America Constitution if you we, the Vietnamese American paid soldiers of the United States of America have forgot our oath loyalty and loyal America Constitution, so we must send to prison jailed by the American Court.
    Third, if you were unable to understand about the prisoner of the Vietnam War by the heart of the America policy, you should ask John McCann and you should find out to International Laws of Wars when a invader has had betrayed its friendships as like the Vietnamese American of veterans. For example, Canada and Australia were followers of the United States, but they are offering the veterans benefits to the Vietnamese Americans paid soldiers when they have come to the these nations. According to the United States to be super nations, but it was deceiving for the weak and stupid men as like us.
    Finally, you are almost of American scholars when you understood about the International Laws of Wars than the Vietnamese American paid solders, but you have been cheating us when the American invader of the Vietnam War that had the Constitution and Congress have approved the Vietnam War. But you have swallowed your oath loyalty in yourselves, you have never ashamed in one’s self. Therefore, I have created a children’s book in order to teach the American children that they will not follow the bad ways of their fathers in order to teach them to be respectful themselves and will ever deceive to any weak men again. As you understand about President Lincoln, so I would to borrow his words to remind you when he said: “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the People all the time.” that is the powerful benefits of veterans of the Vietnam War.
