You mean assimilate
as in sharing 45-esque
passion in highlighting how "uneducated"
lack de "skills" son esos "others"?
You mean assimilate,
as in assuming
que apenas "some"
de los millones y millones
de Americanos sin papeles
are not "criminal" thugs?
You mean Assimilate,
as in looking the other way while
toxic rhetorics push demeaning stereotypes,
putting elections y el poder
sobre dignidad y empathy de tantos Dreamers?
You mean assimilate,
as in forget your past, forget your language, and forget your culture,
assimilate as in rally during prime times vs los "intruders"
and demand a great gran muro wall across the land and up to the sky?
los dehumanizing messages
vs vulnerable dreamers?
Oh, pero pues
there are lots of Americanos con papeles
assimilating quite well, que no?
Into the 45 ish school of "thought"?
How much assimilation
So we travel on earth seeking the terrain of Poetry, walking through wilderness and empty landscape or visiting those ancient sites like Dholavira in far-western Gujarat, or Mykenai in the Greek Peloponnese, or the Arawak campsite on eastern Carriacou in the Grenadine Windward Isles, pursuing that authenticity of experience in a form of antique material reality...
These are places, strange and vague situations where death is manifold and thoroughly extant to the careful eye. There are women’s bangles made of shell to be picked up from the saline dust or small copper beads and thin chert blades, or tiny obsidian arrow-heads that can be unhidden and disclosed beneath those bloody grey walls about the Lion Gate, or beautiful indented potsherds and ceramic fragments at the waterline where the Atlantic rolls out its long blue visceral waves...

“Dare to live the life you have dreamed."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
What began as a series of literary salons and writing workshops is now a worldwide circle of literary & fine artists who believe that words, art, and music act as a transcendent bridge, and allow us to create the lives we have imagined. Poets and Dreamers Literary Circle and the Poets and Dreamers Literary & Fine Arts Journal exist as opportunities for authors and artists to actualize themselves through collaboration and the circulation of literary and fine arts.
