Poetry & Prose

Many Years Ago, Today (By Rita Harris-Green)

Husband, father, handsome, artistic, strong, charming, intelligent, articulate, kind, loving, forgiving, patient, generous, and every other positive adjective there is in the dictionary, is what describes him.

Everyone loved him, and I was first in line. He was the kind of person people just wanted to be around. Believe it or not, seeking his wisdom was not out of bounds. Some even thought to emulate him because he carried himself as a proud Husband, Father, brother, and son until he met you, a scheming succubus, and your parasitic bent. Intent on draining an honorable man with nothing but heroic and resolute intent.

He became a being that not even his family knew. A Mr. Hyde to the Dr. Jekyll that everyone knew.

Minutes from the Heart-Glimpses into a man and his heart

The heart does not write, It does not sit before paper, with pen in hand, or keyboard with fingers poised over fading letters.

The heart speaks, often in a rapid, unexpected torrent. It is moved, and it moves. It brings forth angst, anguish, betrayal, denial, and triumphs. It sings of dances seen over and over again. All while remaining secret. It gushes rather than plods. Its synchronicity is sometimes out of time to its own rhythm.

The heart is art; It is passion, It is the source, the ocean that feeds the rivers of souls, And the question that longs to be answered. It speaks in minutes while taking lifetimes to be understood. Minutes from the Heart stands not as a gift as much as a challenge. Do with it what you will.

It’s Not About Color-It’s your state of mind

WOP, MICK, GUINEA, SPIC, COON, SLOPE, TOWEL-HEAD, REDMAN, KIKE, SPEAR-CHUCKER, JUNGLE BUNNY, BEANER, GREASER, AND NIGGER. If you know any of these words, their genesis, and shameless offspring, then it is time to strike them from your life. Erase them from your mind, delete them from the vocabulary of People kind. Do you honestly think that your opinion of me, in truth, determines my place in this society? At the end of the day, it is not about race, gender, or the different people that may come to mind working to pass judgment on me and the rest of mankind.

If God Had to Account for Us-Thoughts and Poems Not Necessarily Rolling...

Mark Twain once wrote: “Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.”

Such is what each of us should strive for in this God-ordained life. It does not require anything extra or cost all that you have.

It does not bring about the daily emergence of new levels of pain or the forming of lies just to get by. 

It requires beginning each day understanding that in the end, or I should say, in the new beginning, there will be an accounting for the things you have said, or perhaps for reasons known only to you, did not say.

So, awake each day, intent on speaking wisdom from your Godgiven heart. Let no other heart play a part. Begin each meal, spiritual and physical, by thanking God for the sustenance and keeping his part of the deal. While doing so, improve the imperfections that undoubtedly exist within your own. We are each a work of art. A sculpture in progress, placed in this earthly class to bring about not a better you, but a better we. For this, we must each account.

View from My Bay, Growing up Me, the Poetic Lines

G-Square Publishing is honored to release this thoughtful work from Vinny Green, the life-long corruption fighter, former Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigation, and Chief Executive Officer for G-Square Publishing.

In stark contrast to his previous award-winning literary works, the decorated corruption fighter finds his voice in this undertaking through his personal prose, poignant poetry, and self-reflective short stories'. Vinny’s life has been devoted to the demise of corruption. This work delves into Vinny’s formative years growing up in the Bayview Houses of Canarsie, Brooklyn, which offered a well-stocked feeding trough in hardy and difficult-to-swallow life-shaping meals in the nurturing and maturing of a corruption fighter.

Over the last four decades, Vinny has mastered the skill and art of corruption fighting and deployed those skills throughout the City of New York and, when called upon, beyond the borders of the United States into the streets and training rooms of developing nations elsewhere.

Green speaks about love, life, loss, illness, injury, tragedy, triumph, family, and terrorism in his View from My Bay.

Untrammeled Love

This is the author’s first book of poems. It consists of eightythree mostly love poems with a dash of lust and hate. Each was written with little to no pre-thought given to the limitations of man’s corporal mind, but with the beauty of the ineffable love resting in the hearts and minds of most beings who choose to embrace truth when looking into the eyes of true love.

Untrammeled Love is more than an anthology of poems and prose speaking of love. It is a treasure map taking the reader to the rainbow, unmasking the pot of gold, revealing what it means to be "In-Love.” What you hold in your hand, see on your screen, or hear in your blessed ears, is not simply for sharing. These pages will bring forth feelings, revive dreams, and scrape the scales from the trammeled vision blocking what should be your reality.

Many Years Ago, today 

Husband, father, handsome, artistic, strong, charming, intelligent, articulate, kind, loving, forgiving, patient, generous, and every other positive adjective there is in the dictionary, which is what describes him. Everyone loved him, and I was first in line. He was the kind of person people just wanted to be around. Believe it or not, Seeking his wisdom was not out of bounds. Some even thought to emulate him because he carried himself as a proud Husband, Father, brother, and son until he met you, a scheming succubus, and your parasitic bent. Intent on draining an honorable man with nothing but heroic and resolute intent.

 

He became a being that not even his family knew. A Mr. Hyde to the Dr. Jekyll that everyone knew. He came into our lives with gale-force winds, a hurricane, tearing up the roots laid down by parents, siblings, and yes, even his loving wife. The very foundation that we were trying to build our lives. You skillfully reduced it all to sand in a windstorm. Your seductive and alluring chant somehow seemed pleasing to him, despite the pleas of those who cared. Tempting, taunting, tormenting, and compelling this man among men, causing him to behave in ways that he couldn't control. He became grotesque as he morphed into a being unknown. Becoming an alien, a next-generation parasite, an undesirable character meeting the needs of no one other than the new beast within.

 

You became the love of his life; I couldn't compare or compete even though I was his wife. You turned him into the slave that he didn't want to be. He couldn't help himself; he lusted after you even more than he loved me.
