Sanctified: Chapter 12- Skin, Bone, Entrails

Fosco could not fully wrap his hand
Around the giant fang, trying not
To gross himself out as the bloody
     Tooth pulsed in his grasp, shooting a buzz
     Of searing energy through his bones.
     The spiny best shot into the air
          And Fosco plunged the fang into it’s
          Belly as he slid underneath the
          Monster. It shrieked as Fosco dragged the
     Tooth down it’s stomach, entrails and green
     Goo splattered to the floor and onto
     Fosco’s face. He gagged as the beast
Dropped dead; Fosco’s skin slithered as he tried
To shake off the beasts insides from his
Body. “That’s two of those things you’ve killed,”
     A red haired woman choked out, “you must
     Be blessed by an Angel.” Fosco scoffed,
     “I’m just trying not to get eaten.”
          A young man with baggy jeans jumped up
          And said, “Well guide us to the promise
          Land since you know how to face these fiends.”
     Fosco took a deep breath and said, “I
     Have some place to be tomorrow and
     These ‘fiends’ ain’t gon’ stop me.” The other
Survivors glanced at each other and
Silently agreed to follow him.

Sanctified: Chapter 11: Wield It Like Its Yours

Sedequa raised her sword, nice and slow,
Her gaze trapping the feathery beast.
“Come and get you a piece, she challenged.
It must have recognized the look in
Her eyes, or maybe it was the way
     She wielded her sword that made the beats
     Shriek in terror and fly away. “Dang,”
     Sedequa huffed, her arm twitching as
     She lowered her sword. The man behind
     Her turned her around and said, I know
A safe place to take shelter.” She shook
Her head. “My brother’s expecting me
In Portland.” Sedequa replied, not
Concerned with explaining it further.
“This ain’t the time for no damn road trip,”
     The man argued. Sedequa swung her
     Sword in front of her and said, “Do what
     You must, I can take care of myself.”
     “Damn,” the man frowned. “Well you’re the one with
     The holy blade these things seem to be
          Terrified of so I’ll stick with you.”
          Sedequa grinned and said, “Teamwork sounds
          Great, with dozens of these things loose out
          There, the Trek to Portland may be wild.”
          “Lead the way,” he said, “By the way, I’m
Dustin.” “Call me Sedi.” Time to leap.

Sanctified: Chapter 9: Power

Sedequa grinned, wielding the ancient
Weapon as if it was meant for her
And no one else. The beast growled, it’s eyes
Throwing daggers of rage and envy
As it sprinted on all fours straight to
     Sedequa. It heals fast, she thought, but
     Even monsters need their heads to breathe.
     She leaped into the air, the long sword
     Tight between her hands; the beast was not
     Quick enough and Sedequa shoved the
Sword straight into the back of its skull.
It came out of the beasts mouth making
A loud clank as it hit the tiled
Floor. The beast fell limp and Sedequa
Snatched the sword out of its skull, her sword.
     The man with the dark eyes swept Sedequa
     By the waist and said, “We gotta get
     Far away from here.” He pulled her to
     The emergency exit, his arms
     Shaking as he kicked the door open.
          Sedequa did not let go of her
          New weapon as she followed the man.
          A giant feathered beast with talons
          Darted in front of them; Sedequa
          Smirked and said, “Stay behind me.” She squeezed
The sword and saw her future. Power.

Sanctified: Chapter 8- Wings and Fangs

Fosco did not stop slamming his big
Copper-colored luggage until he was
Sure the monster would not get back up.
    Green slime and sweat all over his face
    Fosco looked up at the stoned-terror
    Faced stragglers who failed to make it
Out of the airport lobby in time.
“I’m sticking with him,” a teen girl said,
Pointing to Fosco and jumping right
    Behind him as more beasts crossed through the
    Shattered windows. “We gotta get some
    Place safe, with walls and doors,” a man with
        Slick black hair proclaimed. Fosco wiped the
        Green slime from his forehead and said, “This
        Way.” The teen girl behind him bent down
    And picked up one of the fangs from the
    Monsters smashed head, slipping it into
    Her pocket as she followed Fosco
And the other nine survivors up
The escalator “Stay close,” he said.
He wielded his luggage like it was
     A holy blade that only he was
     Worthy of possessing—compelling.
     A beast with horns along its spine jumped
In front of them. Fosco sprang up quick,
Uppercutting it with his suitcase.

Sanctified: Chapter 7- Horns and Blades

Sedequa watched as a horned creature
Ignored the humans dripping in fear
And set a path for the part of the
Exhibit that housed the warrior
Statues. The beast’s leathery skin was
    Violet, covered in lilac-colored
    Tattoos. Marching on its hind legs, the
    Monster smashed and crushed the warrior
    Statues, the scent of vengeance close by.
    Sedequa jumped to her feet, a rush
Of adrenaline racing through her
Veins and chased after the beast with horns.
The beast spun around in mid rampage
Growling as Sedequa slid under
Its legs. She grabbed one of the spear blades
    A now crumbled warrior wielded
    And used it to stab through the back of
    The monster’s meaty leg. The beast screeched
    As it fell to the floor, its long arm
    Reaching back and slamming Sedequa
        Against a large warrior statue.
        Wrong move; it shattered leaving nothing
        But a pile of rocks and an iron
        Sword. She snatched up the sword and turned to
        Finish the violet beast in her path.
Catching it’s gaze, she dared it to pounce.

Sanctified: Chapter 4- Watch It Crack

Sedequa’s spine seared as the screeches
Shook the museum, the man with the
Dark eyes swiftly looked around—cracks—crumble.
The giant statue in front of the
Two strangers quivered as cracks spread all
    Throughout the winged beast’s body. It’s large
    Eyes lit up red and the beast came to
    Life. It roared as it shook off the stone
    Chips that once engulfed its body. They
    Were real. Panic quickly swept across
The museum, screams of deathly sights
Flooding the building. Sedequa
Watched, her legs frozen, as a large cat
Statue went from gray to a vibrant
Green covered in pink spikes and pounced on
    A young woman running to the door.
    It devoured her. “Get down,” the man
    Shouted, wrapping his arms around her
    Waist and rolling to the floor as the
    Winged monster flew over, fangs ready
        To rip into human flesh. They were
        Alive and hungry, tearing through the
        Museum and breaking through windows
        And walls. They were craving flesh, yearning
        To be free. Free to hunt, free to kill,
Just as Sedequa pined for freedom.

Sanctified: Chapter 3- Don’t Bother

Sedequa could not wait to see the
“Monsters of the Congo” as the news
Was dubbing them. White people of old
Left statues of naked men and tits
That receive respect and praise but when
    Africans build creative and awe
    Inducing masterpieces, they’re seen
    As monstrous and frightening, she thought,
    But as Sedequa explored the more
    Than eight dozen stone sculptures with wings
And meticulously designed scales
And claws and fangs she couldn’t help but feel
Slightly intimidated by the
Art of ancient peoples, she was struck
With a strange feeling of abandon.
    “They’re quite something, arent’t they,” a man asked,
    His dark eyes and brown skin glistening
    In the light from the windows of the
    Museum. “Breathtaking,” Sedequa said.
    “I couldn’t miss the grand opening,”
        He continued, “Same with you?” She smiled
        And said, “They remind me of someone
        I used to know.” The man grinned and said,
        “They must be a magical person.”
        Sedequa would have smiled again,
If the screeching had not filled her ears.

Te extraño; I miss you.

This is a poem dedicated to one of my greatest friends and mentors, Heather Ayala. I miss you and I love you!

Te extraño; I miss you.

I want to learn the things you know
I want to love and share and grow
I want to sing and dance and show
Show the world that I am here too
I want to be free, free with you
You see the world in such a way
To you there’s always brighter days
I do not want to cry, no more
At times I drift far from the shore
I want to learn the things you do
I want to be free, free with you

I need to find myself right now
I need for you to show me how
I need to laugh and smile now
Show me the way to inner peace
I need all this heartache to cease
You lift your sisters, brothers too
Striving for justice, that’s all you
You shine your light on everyone
You live, changing lives one by one
Your love an abundant increase
I need all this heartache to cease

I love that you are there for me
I love knowing you’ll never leave
You showed me the way to live free
You are strong and brave, and kind too
I am thankful for knowing you
You make me laugh when tears are strong
You help me grow when I am wrong
A teacher, a friend, helpful hand
The angel in my wonderland
Blessed is the time I shared with you
I am thankful for knowing you
