Lucky 13 started as a project to build a story aside readers. The problem was a structural one as I was unable to create the interaction appropriately. I realized in figuring how to do the collage books how to formulate the choose your path book. 

The poll above relate to the book accessible through the following link LINK

Dear Readers, 

I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, through its comments I will posts various topics concerning writing.

This Collage book is based on the 1985 film legend. This Collage was interesting as the themes of Evil/Love/Fairies/Demons encircled each other.  Legend source story is more romantic and the Evil is not as straightforward as some will like to think, to be fair it is darkness not evil. Like the prior week , Please use the kobo mobile app to view. Please tell me your thoughts in private message if you are part of my email list or in guest comment here... Lastly, I am pondering what the next collage book should reference, the private collage series will involve black stories like john henry or three the hard way getting the treatment, so any ideas to another non black story you will like me to collage?

Richard Murray Collages Book 1

Good day all, in my attempt to find a way to make the following epub functional on all systems I took time I hoped to present it to you  before next month. As hinted, I was unsuccessful in making the epub functional in every ereader but I can confirm that if you read the epub in the kobo app it can be accessed and viewed appropriately. Now, what is the epub? 

Well, it is as the title to this blog entry suggest, Richard Murray Collages Book 1 . It is the epub version to the zenith power collage placed below. I realized after gaining reply that the length or style to my collage needed adjusting. To that end, I hopefully made this form more functional to my readers. But, gardless, I hope you enjoy this. It is free to download so all that is lacking is your interest. If you want more context to the story or how this idea came about read from the boldened or capitalized text "the zenith power collage" below. As it is, this is the 1st in this series and the next story I will make a collage from is the 1985 film Legend. As always your thoughts are welcome to the stories <please tell me your favorite photo> , or to the epub structure, or any other art or design topic. Be Safe

THE ZENITH POWER COLLAGE 6-28-2017

The following is an update to the original post, appended below the following. From the beginning my goal was to make a screenplay publicly. I admit, I was going to use regular text but luckily found a kobo writing life blog post from Chris Mandeville which gave me the idea to make a collage to begin the process. I thought that was a nice artful way to engender a public view to where WE will go. But, while I was making the collage I already knew I wanted to make a powerpoint for it, with fragments, not complete stories even flash stories. But, fragments, not even spell checked. I wrote them all rawly and intending for them to be discussed or debated. Thus, here is my Zenith Power Fragment Collage. With this tool you guys can note the particular fragments you like, suggest or discuss possibilities where we can go next. Remember, if you are not a member of African American Literary Book Club you can still comment as a guest. I ask that you do so and use whatever monicker from the esocial world you use, so I know it is you. Ignore, the link button on the first page, it is only if people embed or link to the powerpoint in other places away from here. Just click anywhere on the image below outside the link button to begin. One last note...:) I used the side panel space to link to my other ebooks so click where it does not seem like a book cover. 

 

 

Well, what say you?! If you want another structure, Here are my Writing Islands, will you or have you made one

 

THE FOLLOWING PUBLISHED ON JUNE 10th 2017

Chris Mandeville presented her collage to a story she wrote and that made me think. Why not present a collage to a story I have pondered and we can discuss collages in an open story, one in which i create in public. Below is my collage to my tentatively titled "The Zero Power"  based on one of my favorite films from the 80s , the first power, starring  lou diamond phillips. It is similar to the film, Fallen, starring Denzel washington, i dare say its predecessor, not a prequel but the same kind of villain. and in both movies,a non beleiving cop in spiritual matters, at least to the level of possession, is warned and does not heed it, and the criminal after murder by the state, spiritually possesses others, against their will and is allowed to act free. In the First Power, more abilities are gained over time while in fallen it is just the one and in both, the end does not convince that the negative spirit is killed. Though in first power, it seems a negative spirit possessed the murderer, while in fallen the murderers spirit is itself the actor.
A few things come to mind, some openings, first the story is not confined. the cause to this negativity is not made clear or who is supporting it is not made clear. All the main characters roles are up in the air, is russ's character possessed or not. who taught seaton and will she grow, what is her true role? the spirit of marguerite is not dead but where is it, what role will she play especially concerning the christian church that opposed invovlement

so, i went about making a collage.I first got photos of the people. And i saw the shape of a cross, lou diamond atop, korber the bottom, arlen and williamson to the wings, griffith centrally. between Russ(lou diamond) and the killer(korber) is the nun(arlen), the seer(griffith) and the friend(williamson). 
but then i had a bunch of pieces in my mind: ancient church to satan in spain and zealots in california populated around korber, then excommunicated christian nun next to arlen. I think to late believer to Williamson. I thought seer in love to griffith.lastly, to lou diamond i thought , sleeping christian knight. 

This is what I came up with to the story, The Zero Power, which I am thinking of calling The Zenith Power instead. If you read the rundown, which I place below for those unfamiliar to the story, you will comprehend, why Zero and then Zenith.  After you read the rundown or from your general thoughts, any ideas to what images I should add to the collage:)

It all began from existence, the exotempo 

In her ability, exoknowable 

She made her children, spaces side times 

One particular pair, the otheres to far to know if 

while no mortal body know when, produced grand children to existence 

Star-es, nebula-es, comet-es 

From some grandchildren, eventually, came great grandes 

Little star-es, planet-es, asteroid-es and a great grand in particular relate to me, maybe to you 

That little star, felt every day, had great greates, little planet-es or asteroid-es  

One little planet, had children: skies, landes, sea-es 

Those great to the third grew strong, beautiful, or pristine 

Lived on their mother, they eventually made children 

The landes made tree-es, cat-es, or monkey-es 

The sea-es made fish-es, crustacean-es, or algae-es 

The skies made bird-es, insect-es , virus-es 

All the great to the fourth grew in quantity or quality in their parent or parental sibling 

Said little planet very happied, had all abundant grandchildren lived the way from existence, nature 

Over time the little planet realized the gift from existence to her children was not in her great grandes 

She asked her children side the great to the fourth 

...If they are willing to work together, to make a fifth 

All great third side algae-es or plant-es said yes, but the other great fourth worried 

The lion or wolf clan wondered where they will live 

The eagle or bee clan wondered how many will grow 

The dolphin or shark clan wondered what will they eat 

And, the great to the fifth was not to be 

...Time pass, and a sleepy little planet asked again 

Replied from all her children or grandchildren... was yes 

The virus gave change, the dolphin speech, the monkey heart 

... the tiger lung-es, the vulture sight, and all other great to the fourth gave one gift 

The land-es, sea-es, skies combined a gift to have children like 

The last gift was from the little planet, a soul to each 

And, the great to the fifth nascented 

In their early time, they varied in strength, size, intuition, speed, phenotype, per their parentage 

As time progress, some lived against existence, an unnatural way 

In their low quality, they clothed their bodies 

Killed to boast, spoke to lie, enslaved anything 

From a stone on the ground, aided in harming a stranger 

To marked a relative as if a possession  

Time pass, and the unnatural, through war or indelicacy 

Grew beyond the natural in populace 

And... the unnatural enslaved some parentes 

Raped their grandparent-es 

while broke their great grandmother heart 

Eventually, to save her descendent-es in danger 

The little planet asked her oldest forebear to help 

A magic gave and a mirror world gated on the little planet 

Where only the natural can be 

The mirror world absorbed the great to the third still pristine or who can recover 

The great to the fourth still free or not inevitably extinct 

All those in the great to the fifth who lived naturally 

The unnatural fifth... lived alone on the original decimated little planet, side their enslaved 

... After time, those absorbed to the mirror world became various myth or legend to those blockaded 

And from that time became what I know as history 

Now, how can I know this, writing to you 

Neither from us born in the peaceful mirror world 

Well, I was educated from a woman 

From the world, who saw our own 

Go through pharoah, king, war, again and again in various form 

Born from all the natural in the mirror world 

A single child that can move between either, through her free will 

And, one day, the great to the sixth saved an unnatural man 

And began our story, whose background I just told to you 

A wonderful woman I still hear galivant 

While I sit quiet from that life, a silver haired man

October

The saddest while honest commentary 

To modernity, is the plea to peace 

Treating it naturally while bloodshed get inhuman  

What history explain any gentle feel today 

And, I read many people speak to a better tomorrow, while never the content yesterday 

I oppose that dawn 

Unable to have patience to live 

Knowing my bloodline will get what I wanted 

Through a path I did not want, or had faith in 

But I learnt in patient time, a better tomorrow from a content yesterday 

When it is the care that is not forgotten first 

The Dawn Fall Rose know... 

A queen walked through a forest, outside her abode 

And in it found a Dawn Fall Rose 

It scent to her frilly thinges 

Tween the tiptoe-es from loveres new  

To the time travelling dreames from loveres mature  

When she got to the court, she had to reach 

That is another story, more laborious, not sweet 

She give the rose, to a fox, her son in fact 

Why on pawes, a later tell again 

...and the pawed prince, rose in mouth, head to his brother keep 

Once a castle to the king, now mere battlement 

The fox prince aside, the sleeping king, who fight the gold bone juggleres each night 

Thus his sleep each day 

The fox place the rose to his face 

And from love he wake in day 

A little care from yesterday made a gentle long way

Happy September Equinox. Mama Earth in less than a moment had an axis tilted parallel to the Sun. May those in the northern hemisphere, have a collective , communal Autumn, may those in the southern hemisphere, have a blossoming sweet Spring

I will make the audio in the middle to next week at the post date to this post, below is the June Solstice audio, enjoy for now. The September Equinox text is under the audio.

 

When day close one eye side night the same 
Half to each soul hide from each way 
In a moment that came, a mage made a brew 
Side a scientist, molded a similar too 
The moment passed, and all to do 
One must drink, the other view through 
In a northern land, in a city where Earth blood, outweigh Earth children 
The scientist become a legend 
Flying through sky how eagle chick dream 
The mage protect what she brew-see 
But realities combine, form a phoenix up high 
Burn the legend from the sky 
A tumble down, wild, unhinge, the water is the end 
A tear mix in the brew 
Not fore the scientist adieu 
Adieu my amor, adieu 
The mage spill the brew... 
Curse the balance tween all or shadow 
Curse my inner fool... 
And, she sweep alone in her home, missing who?  
No more messages through, why you fool 
And yeyah beckon her to a beach 
When dawn or most are sleep 
...The tide refresh her feet but not her need 
Calm not the heart even, in the sea 
Day break into night, a way 
Not to her, only to her vision play 
She walk and wonder who is it 
A person... very fortunate 
And... amaze, wonder, belief, all come together 
Her love is the rising treasure 
She hold him tight in the sand 
He hold a ring, he say is her tear 
Only a love object, can go through, a mage's brew 
It was proved, undoubtedly true 
Who cares you! 
And she place it on her hand 
The tear that simple missed

Listen to "January Perihelion 2017" on Spreaker.

Farthest from the light 
Is the ancient under water wheel 
Seahorse, crab, anchovy, or like, dance in it 
The last to it's kind 
It's descendent's, kill or betray the old life 
...Long before man, or when dinosaur's began 
Earth made the ancient plant's 
To play side all other children 
But... came a change 
Earth became cloudy, the sunlight distant in essence 
And, nearest penultimate ancient plant's died 
But the heart from Earth, did not want all to die 
And embrac'd the ancient under water wheel 
To usher in the dinosaur 
And, it surviv'd, to today, deep in the water 
Far from the sun , alway's

Leah Cutter has this idea for a  island map where you use the coordinates for the genre you write in and make these islands
So I first had to list my work, I chose only the work I have published on Kobo, I didn't choose everything I have ever written or had accepted in this that or the other. While that would be fair, to be honest, my mindset is, if I incorporate those things that I may have to add another axis and I didn't want this to be muddled too much. If you ever tried to graph a function having five variables by hand you comprehend me, in the visual imbalance to that. 
As it is, I first listed each work I have in Kobo or I am working on this year, and labeled them next to it

For me, what I see is quite a bit of poetry and story collections

If I use two axis- one for poetry the other for prose, the poetry can go from sport to fantasy(red)
the prose from sport assessment to fantasy either have social critique or religious fiction in the center (green)
I came up with the grid in the following ...Before I created it I knew it would not be good enough, the graphical scheme needed a change for me. I added Roman numeral index to the list and applied the numerals into the graph but I then went at it again

1st attempt.jpg
So I was more rigid, placing an alphanumeric next to each representing a book next to each book that applied going down the line adding in

Fiction- Religious 1
Poetry-Sport 2347
Prose- Sport 2347
Comic- Sport 234
Fantasy- short story 58B      
Adult-riddles 5
Science Fiction- unfinished 6
Fable 8
Fantasy -script 9
Science fiction - script A
Fantasy poetry C
social critique poetry C
Fantasy fiction D
science fiction D 

Then I remade the categories to focus on genre, I excluded audio which is unfair since i added the comics. But, the audio is akin to the text.

Religious fiction 1
Sport poetry 2347
Sport prose 2347
sport comic 234
Fantasy - short story 58B
Adult- riddles 5
Science fiction unfinished 6
Fable 8
Fantasy - script 9
Science fiction- script A
Fantasy poetry C
Social critique poetry C
Fantasy Fiction D
Science Fiction D

Then the true boundaries came to light. 
I have fiction: religious/Fantasy-short story/fable/fantasy script/science fiction script/fantasy/science fiction
Sport: poetry/prose/comic
Adult: riddles
poetry: fantasy/social critique 
if I combine riddles into poetry, which is not literally true, a riddle need not be a poem but the adult riddles in looking west and west are poetic, i should know:), then I have three shapes

Fiction is a septagon
Sport is a trigon
and the poetry is a trigon 

but then i realized the shapes don't merge functionally , fiction needs to be an  nonagon, to include sport and nonfiction; sport must be a quadgon to include nonsport, and poetry must be a quadgon to include nonpoetry, and I index them

fiction(green): I religious/ II Fantasy-short story/ III fable/ IV fantasy script/ V science fiction script/ VI fantasy/ VII science fiction/ IIX sport/ IX nonfiction (yellow)
Sport(red): I poetry/ II prose/ III comic/ IV nonsport (blue)
Poetry(black): I fantasy/ II social critique/ III adult riddle/ IV nonpoetry (brown)

So the following is the second attempt, I made the shapes and then placing the alphanumeric described above. 
For example, the gospel of joseph is religious fiction. So I placed digit one under the appropriate green line, using purple. For some books where I do multiple I made purple lines connecting, thus making islands, if you will on top of each other in the air that are see through except for the border. 
But this proves how some work I do have multifaceted and some does not. 
second attempt complete.png
The first thing is obvious I learn about my writing, a lot of poetry. More than I even considered, spanning various genres, which makes my first poetry book this year, common sense. 
But it also shows how much of my poetry is dominated through sport and not beyond into the fantastic thus the poetry book this year will be about the fantastic. 
I also have not settled on a favorite fiction genre I like to write in. well, as it is , can you make your own graph and share with all what you have learned about your writing

I was inspired by this post

A White House Carol

A White House Carol by Richard Murray v2 small.jpg

A White House Carol 

From  

Richard Murray 

 
 

In the morning and afternoon, in Christmas eve, in the year two thousand and seventeen: tweets, blogs, news anchors, or other modern media personnel utter out variances to President Trump; the year, is near complete, when the President try to climb above: rigid governing party line, violent tribalism, backstabbing factions, or other negative partitioning structures throughout humanity; but he fail in making positive partitioning structures, while ever increasing problems generate from the early or hopeful deals; now, dedicate to making a deal that will win all, he is in his bad alone; demand from his doctor can not be ignore; he stay awake while the moon peer in his temporary home and eventually he fall into sleep, and the clock strike ten. ...  

 
 

Trump feel a pinch on his left foot, and shuffle; easy to incense, he notice a light figure and look to call the secret service.  

 
 

"Why do you modern presidents always to that 

 
 

Trump expect to hear a voice through the phone; none arrive after many button are press, and he calm his nerves; his eye set to the light figure, and he notice a human visage; he cry out to his guard. 

 
 

"I have all night, which is as long as you want it 

 
 

"Don't hurt me 

 
 

"You have already hurt yourself... but I am here to guide you 

 
 

Trump collect his thoughts and say: "who are you? 

 
 

"Monroe... James Monroe 

 
 

Trump think for moments 

 
 

"You had us align chronologically in the hall, sequentially I am between Madison and Quincy Adams 

 
 

Trump still ponder 

 
 

"That does not matter, do you have an idea to why I am here 

 
 

"Not at all, really... I really don't 

 
 

"I am here to warn you 

 
 

"Warn me about what?! 

 
 

The eyelids from the light figure close and it grimace extremely  

 
 

"It is amazing how the living is free from the pain absent time while treasuring a handful from moments in their life 

 
 

Trump is in disconnect or confuse. Monroe turn round and set his back to Trump. Trump jump out from his bed to the door, witnessing creatures eat the entire backside from James Monroe.  

 
 

"Do not fear them Trump, but heed their warning! 

 
 

"And what is that... Monroe 

 
 

"The harshness that your eventuality can bring 

 
 

"Listen, I don't understand, I really do not comprehend 

 
 

"Of Course you do not, none of us did... 

 
 

Monroe turn to the window and a loud shriek come into the room.  

 
 

"What was that! 

 
 

"That was Jackson 

 
 

"Andrew Jackson, I don't believe it, he was a great president 

 
 

"Great... yes, he was great, but you confuse great to good, you see his deals, domination, expansions, and you see power, prestige, but side that was cruelty, treachery, sinful pride, a hardness that never bent... and so he bends now... look! 

 
 

Trump go onto his bed and hide under sheets 

 
 

"You can not hide from the truth 

 
 

Trump, encase in covers, is raise above the bed; he cry out: "what are you doing?! 

 
 

"Nothing... you still do not see 

 
 

The cover about Trump is peel away and a thing, pull his arms out, while in the air; and, pull his eyelids back; he shrieks seeing Andrew Jackson bent like a taco being burn or frozen in various places.  

 
 

"Do you see now Trump... 

 
 

Monroe point to another place and Trump is place there. In terror Trump say: "Who is that! 

 
 

"It is John Tyler... do you recall him 

 
 

Trump turn away and say:"no 

 
 

"He made a choice to betray those whom he was supposed to stand by, instead he tried to appease those that did not like him and in that imbalance, as you can see, many people were tore apart from those that was part to who they were, now he has to continually tear at his body, bands from one side to the other 

 
 

Trump squeeze his eyes shut after hearing Tyler cry louder; the spirit tear at itself, left hand to right torso or right hand to left torso, tearing roughly while skin fall or blood spill. Trump is set down. 

 
 

"Am I in hell?"   

 
 

"Calm yourself, you are alive and getting a chance to make your passed time better, you are not in hell 

 
 

"But I don't get this at all... did my predecessor have a night like this 

 
 

"Yes 

 
 

"Why didn't he say something? 

 
 

"Would you had listened or had any respect to the man 

 
 

Trump look down  

 
 

"Of course now, besides you don't see the cause to this 

 
 

"What is the cause! 

 
 

"The presidency itself, the position like all powerful chairs binds whomever sit in it. Some chairs let you dream the lies you made or keep you isolated side your biggest failure... this chair torments you using your errors 

 
 

Monroe approach Trump and offer, the mortal, a comfort or pat on the back. Trump jitter nervously.  

 
 

"Don't you see, none of us can manipulate you, only guide you hoping you will see what you have to do and I see you will have a long night... to that end you will be visited tonight by three ghosts: purpose, community, truth and it is time for me to go 

 
 

"But wait Monroe, if you always do this, why not come earlier 

 
 

"I do not always do this 

 
 

"But why come here then, you are not my ancestor... why not Washington 

 
 

"It is simple, you are most like me... like you, I wanted to bring Columbia back to what I thought was a greater time... I did not see, how many were hurt from cruel people I empowered through my plan to bring everyone together. I learned that uniting all peoples can not occur on one people's terms or ... or... you get these creatures knowing at all I don't see including my own reverse... if any of us match a new president, the chair choose us to warn you on Christmas Eve 

 
 

Monroe suddenly yell and scream; the creatures are bigger on her back while, a thing, lift him to beyond the window, about his peer.  

 
 

Trump go to the window and in horror see Abraham Lincoln; the father to the Republican party melting away from a blob like thing emanating form his skull; he notice Monroe is set face up while the creatures attach to a void; he call out to Monroe, but the pain overtook the spirit.  

 
 

Trump step back and notice the thing whose own skin is trying to suffocate it is Thomas Jefferson; he only notice through a moment to normal as the skin grow back and peel off into the mouth from Jefferson.  

 
 

Trump turn and jump into bed. 

 
 

"Mad spirit... bah humbug, that is the stupidest thing ever, I will find out who did this and they will pay 

 
 

The light dim and return to the state before, while the: howls, yells, or screams fade.  

 
 

"I need a drink... some nice egg nog"   

 
 

And Trump put on his slippers and prepare to travel the hallway; he open the door and people are sitting all about on a lawn. Trump rush to go back into the room and close the door.  

 
 

"Donald Trump!": announce a booming voice; again, it speak the same.  

 
 

Trump run to his bed, slippers on, and hide under the cover; after moments, he hear a voice say: "you can not evade me, my purpose is clear" ; and some grab the covers and pull them off him.  

 
 

Trump sense bright light and know his room is not present; he say: "please don't hurt me 

 
 

The voice gently say: "Monroe told you the truth and you can not stop this so the harder you make my situation, the longer and more painful it will be for you 

 
 

Trump open his eyelids and see the lawn where people sit, surround his bed; he ask worryfull: "who are you? 

 
 

A voice from a person standing behind a podium in a distance speak:"come here and you will learn 

 
 

Trump walk between two long columns in a narrow isle, not a seat empty, every face look to him; a little fatigue he try to see, looking to the horizon, where any row end; but none seem to end.  

 
 

"Come on Trump... you can make it, you walked far less than this 

 
 

Trump reach the podium and the man put out his hand.  

 
 

"Welcome Trump, I am William Henry Harrison, your ghost of Christmas purpose 

 
 

"I don't recall your presidency 

 
 

"Yes, most do not know of it. I caused my death in a place like this 

 
 

"Assassination 

 
 

"Well, yes, through natural forces... they were the bullet, the gun was my love to speaking 

 
 

"I am a pretty good motivator 

 
 

"... well, remember that essay in the New York Times 

 
 

"Listen, I spoke the truth 

 
 

"Ha ha ha... yes, you spoke as you saw fit, the most truthful intention... but not the truth in the scenario 

 
 

"Ok listen, I am a pretty smart guy, where is my past, where is that woman that I mistreated... who I grew up with 

 
 

"Ha... yes, you still do not see. This is not Dicken's fable. this is real. you were given a choice already, a choice in every moment in your life, but you failed to choose positively to yourself side others, usually only to yourself 

 
 

"I don't have to listen to this, this is ridiculous 

 
 

Trump try to walk away but is unable to.  

 
 

"You were told, the chair has decided 

 
 

"Well can I just talk to the chair then, and forego talking to you or your two friend 

 
 

"No but I will help you, as talking is my skill too... this chair started when Opechanacanough 

 
 

"Who!" 

 
 

"An old native leader... on his death bed cursed whoever led the English colonist 

 
 

"But what does that have to do with the U.S.A. 

 
 

"Patience, please do not interrupt like that... led the English colonist to suffer the pain from all their failure as he id in his life, to his own, that English colony, Virginia, would be led from George Washington who would be the first president to the U.S.A. 

 
 

"So because of Virginia, the U.S.A. has to suffer? 

 
 

"No because of those european... White colonists, presidents will suffer long after they think they can not 

 
 

"That guy was a fool, should had used his magic to win a victory 

 
 

"Magic, mathematics, science... all mean knowledge, how often has humanity used the knowledge it is modernly eager to acquire to positive use... not vain, individualistic goals that hurt others 

 
 

"You do what you gotta do 

 
 

"Yes a saying that seem very purposeful yet lack mentioning the sacrifice to undo what others did before 

 
 

"You have said your case, is that it 

 
 

"No you have some more guest 

 
 

"If they are like you, this should be a cakewalk 

 
 

"Why do you say that? 

 
 

"You are just standing in front of this immense crowd, not great cause no one is talking, but a great crowd 

 
 

"You do not see, my talking caused my death, got pneumonia, lasted for a few weeks, from my own memory 

 
 

"So the chair is unfair to punish you 

 
 

"No, when you accept a chair like this, the time spent is irrelevant, and my punishment is my mouth, every time I talk another person is added, the columns or rows grow, I am surrounded by all the possibilities my pride or vanity did not allow 

 
 

"These people are not people you know 

 
 

"No, they are people my lack of purpose did not make happen. And that is my point to you Trump. Be purposeful, vain advertisements do nothing except lead to a quicker death 

 
 

A person in the front row get up. Trump shuffle frightingly. Harrison say: "remember" as he side Trump are surround from the former sitters; they brush past Trump but the first one nearest Harrison hit the ghost in the face; and the mob assault Harrison through: rips, pulls, hits, bites, kicks; they each hit any part to the body they can access while Harrison wail. Trump see people at the horizon in every angle, riotous; he step back in fear to the refrigerator in the kitchen; it take moments for him to cognize his position; he open the refrigerator door, hurrying, and lift liquor to his lips.  

 
 

A door open and Trump cry out: "please leave me be 

 
 

"Sir": say a secret service agent. 

 
 

"Oh... I apologize Jim... Listen, can you walk me back to my room 

 
 

"Of course Mr. President... is everything all right"  

 
 

"Yes... lets walk... how is your family 

 
 

"They are fine sir, we will enjoy tomorrow, got a good surprise for the kids"  

 
 

"Good, good... well listen, come with me into my room 

 
 

"Sir, step back, give me a moment"  

 
 

The secret service agent communicate to others as Trump stand in the hall way; Trump watch him go into the room; Trump notice a secret service man in front to him, suddenly.  

 
 

"It is okay sir": say a secret service agent behind Trump, startling him.  

 
 

The door to Trump room open and Jim usher the President in.  

 
 

"Do you want me to stay in the room sir"  

 
 

"Yes Jim 

 
 

Trump go into his bed, and relax, certain no spirit will make itself known, now that a guard is present; he slowly rest or relax; before he can nod off he hear a tap; he try to ignore his fear and hear more taps. Trump open his eyelids and see a man he cognize tapping Jim.  

 
 

"Herbert Hoover 

 
 

"Yes, I am glad you know me 

 
 

"You were a winner and it is nice knowing you are similar to me 

 
 

"Not in personal terms Trump. I was an engineer, a fiscal operator who never went bankrupt on fiscal maturity. Did you ever think to learn architecture, or engineering a building construction? 

 
 

Trump is frustrate: "then what do we have in common 

 
 

"We both believe... had faith in business, in individuality overcoming collective woes, especially in this country, we are both businessmen 

 
 

"We are both right 

 
 

"This is not about right or wrong Trump, it is a curse, and we both do not or at least I never saw the truth. Fiscal prosperity, growth benefited us both personally, made life seem like a win if only government get out of the way, as in your bankruptcy, I did not see how greater fiscal allowance never gained the collective value but only disempowered the fiscally poor more 

 
 

"That stance on prohibition was a bad call 

 
 

"Yes, but one I made, cause like you, I talked community only in spirit, not in function and in trying to favor government responsibility in the cultural aspects I neglected many who never had the means to fly or allowed by their fellows to do so... efficiency... efficiency to the enabled is blocked by the successful inefficient 

 
 

"So your my ghost to Christmas community 

 
 

"Yes 

 
 

Jim suddenly fall and break into pieces.  

 
 

"It is alright, your friend is safe, just a scare tactic, but it is not for you 

 
 

Trump is in a puzzlement while Hoover bend over and slowly progress to the floor. 

 
 

"Are you still here Trump?! 

 
 

"Yes... oh god, oh god your blind 

 
 

"I can not see you any more, or feel your skin... as you may guess my pain is to hurt form what I can not stop, hinder, or prepare to 

 
 

Trump watch Hoover crawl on the broken pieces, that is Jim, blood dripping and yet unable to cry out or feel the shards position. Trump turn away from the horror, kneeling to pray or bed or wail. Thunder sound, wind howls all about Trump; he rise from a kneeling position on the white house lawn; a man appear before him; and he say:"you are not death or the ghost of Christmas future 

 
 

"No, I am your ghost of Christmas truth 

 
 

"And what is your pain? 

 
 

"Simple to see truth, totally throughout my soul, unable to discard or hide it 

 
 

"Well what do you want to talk about, certainly not my essays or finance"   

 
 

"As you have guessed, your campaign 

 
 

"What happened is in the past, aren't you here to give me a chance to be better, if I can't escape the curse, why do this 

 
 

"You still do not see... like you I did not see truth. I saw signs the rules from my past or in my present were cracking, and I lied to myself about what needed to be done. In the end my actions to maintain order or justice led to alot of pain 

 
 

"Well, can I go now 

 
 

"I hope you see, your post mortem pain is inescapable, but if you lessen it, you may make the wait easier 

 
 

"The wait, to what! 

 
 

"To the destruction of the chair, which can only happen when Opechanacanough's curse is satisfied"   

 
 

"But from all the talk I heard tonight from you lame spirits, no deal is possible 

 
 

"Your wrong... we may get lucky and a truly positive or great leader may arrive or..."  

 
 

"Or what 

 
 

"Or the U.S.A.  falls, absent a community to govern the chair is nothing 

 
 

"Well, that will not happen in my lifetime! 

 
 

"The truth is, I do not know but I saw quite a few presidents before you and... you give me hope 

 
 

A complete lightness totally surround Trump or the spirit. Trump ponder, looking round.  

 
 

"This is energy from the chair 

 
 

"I thought evil was black 

 
 

"You know already, evil come in all colors... and I leave you to what you wanted an audience too 

 
 

"Wait! I get to go home yes... I really got work to do 

 
 

"You must stay 

 
 

The spirit begin to fade. 

 
 

"Who are you?! 

 
 

"You can call me Pierce... never forget, acting against the truth will lead to fire, unconsumable fire to the chair 

 
 

The spirit, name Pierce, merge into the lightness. 

 
 

Trump feel hear as the lightness approach; his hand burn as it get closer and he scream and scream and scream... and wake while the sun beam on his face. Trump sit up silent or disquiet; he wonder to his guest and is startle when his Christmas day breakfast come in.  

 
 

Later, in the morning, Kelly Anne Conway is about to start the morning tweet plan when she is halt from President Trump; and he say: "It is time to speak to the press about my new plan"; she ask:"What is the basics?"; and he reply...

The Nyotenda is a story I wrote ,as a script, free to fans or others  who may be interested; it was based on a dare perhaps you can figure out what the dare was after reading my prose; it involve a woman who played a video game as a child to adulthood; after she succeed in the videogame in a way, she gain the attention to people from outer space who want to use her skills; she is successfully trained, and achieve a great feat becoming The Nyotenda.
I cognize the universal comprehension from graphic imagery to a global audience that has no common tongue. Sequentially, I added the complete Nyotenda Comic alongside the story in the ebook. Enjoy.

Title:Harlem - June to November 2015

I am a child to Earth
living side my peer, in a concentration
in a night, I see...
not from the Sun, many moon, shining
... many voice yell in the sky
no horn or four horseman ride
remind, a faint glimpse to a god
kicking a free moon by
know why, not I

Out from the quiet Harlem
Where the trees recall yesterday
South from the modern
Where the lights shine away... from the old song in the street
Is a raccoon family
Waiting for sapiens to segregate
Tis a wait insane
Waiting for: fish fry, jass, or roof... parties
Them can not survive: mixing, security, or real estate
But a darkling notice the scene
He provide a path in the shade
Just to a few from Harlem past... to find the Black Bath

Walking outside, I ponder, where is wisdom,
when the Sun can not wake me to see it,
and...
what can be seen from apartment 2B?
concrete sequoia, surround every pane,
even the baby thrush, needing parental sustenance,
can't be known, and...
we all ask, where with all is hope?...
can I know in 9C?
can enlightenment be, where no butterfly roam,
even if I live or write every poem?...
may I live near 2B... only down the hall,
where you live in 4U, and maybe you can see or know,
if you own, a pane or more from hope...
will it sing, to my craft, as I walk...
apartmentless, in the public dark

The Trees or the Churches, are all that will stand
Where is the tree that remember the land
Does a church know where, the skulls from the first, was planted
The collages from modern mancraft is disorganized, most ignorant
I heard from one collagent
... The Pigeon who climbed a whole hill
do not forget a sky
never needing, to walk to one again
... do not forget an earth
while sleeping to fly
truly fly... to a rose beyond any sky
do not forget a time
when two sunflower , grow at first glance
for one grow a short... distance
yet, the shades them can not see prove:sky, earth, or time in chiaroscurhyme
and!...this dummy still stand!
pondering a turncoat dove ponderance
I am comforted in knowing their finiteness
though, I know a clear sadness
for the collages everborn
pretelling I will never know
where stand the skulls, or the land

What if a green speak to you one day
do you think, it will speak to Giants colored grey
or multicolor dirt from an annual day
I say they are not signs... from the urban green
not like those southern trees who know the bloodiest luxiery
A salvadoran Rose, through my mind, once spoke to me
We look at each other through a lens that is the moon
after in the afternoon, a bluejay hope to find
hopping up the fire escape to the top floor, why?!
a rainforest on the third, or higher than Everest on the roof
or maybe a query from the terrace fleur
How do you find a place beyond time, is it galaxy wide, or smaller than an eye?
Does a green, the Moon, or an avian know where it hide

In a deep autumn night
I think, what deep thought
from those once cargo
or more than likely, threw off
did they saw life as hope, or a wrought
did they trusted in nature, used her time
as I have
born in summer, a plethora from light...
this fall beginning
I was unwised, lived on the obvious prismal abuse
suddenly pondering, why I suddenly dream to you
you are not in a thought yesterday
think yesterday has nothing from you?
now nearest to the future
what will winter be, these questions
do you feel the sunlight when i do
do you feel the rain
are you surround between the night stars
do you block their speak
... or the mirror to chaotic reality...
silent fantasy
