A New Romanticism by Andrew Chavez Summary
Andrew Chavez provides a large representative sampling of the poetry that is part of his exploratory journey leading to the final development of his perspective called a new romanticism. Chavez turned to poetry because of intense revelatory experiences; those same revelations guide and direct his work. A reader is allowed an opportunity to follow the ups and downs, the misdirections, errors, and pitfalls that were part of the unique process of discovery. The poetry strives to be as direct, clear, and brief as possible. Chavez believes that a thinking mind with something to say has a natural melody to those expressions. The job of the poet is to say what needs to be said then stop. There is no law of poetry guiding length. A poem should be as long, or short, as necessary to say, tell, or show whatever needs to be said, told, or shown.

Romeo Spikes by Joanne Reay Summary
Working the Homicide squad, Alexis Bianco believes she’s seen every way a life can be taken. Then she meets the mysterious Lola and finds out she’s wrong. More weapon than woman, Lola pursues a predator with a method of murder like no other. The Tormenta. If you think you’ve never encountered Tormenta, think again. You’re friends with one. Have worked for one. Maybe even fallen in love with one. They walk amongst us—looking like us, talking like us. Coercing our subconscious with their actions. Like the long-legged beauty who seduces the goofy geek only to break his heart, causing him to break his own neck in a noose. Or the rock star whose every song celebrates self-harm, inspiring his devoted fans to press knives to their own throats. The pusher who urges the addict toward one more hit, bringing him a high from which he’ll never come down. The tyrannical boss, crushing an assistant’s spirit until a bridge jump brings her low. We call it a suicide. Tormenta call it a score, their demonic powers allowing them to siphon off the unspent life span of those who harm themselves. To Bianco, being a cop is about right and wrong. Working with Lola is about this world and the next . . . and maybe the one after that. Because everything is about to change. The coming of a mighty Tormenta is prophesied, a dark messiah known as the Mosca. To stop him, Bianco and Lola must fight their way through a cryptic web of secret societies and powerful legends and crack an ancient code that holds the only answer to the Mosca’s defeat. If this miscreant rises before they can unmask him, darkness will reign and mankind will fall in a storm of suicides. Nobody’s safe. Everyone’s a threat. *** TORMENTA: THE FACTS Walking amongst us—looking, sounding, and acting just like us—is a type of demon called Tormenta. And, as demons go, they are particularly . . . fiendish. *** A hand locked hard around her neck and the muzzle of her own Magnum, impossibly pulled from its holster, twitched an inch from her chin. “Do I have your attention, Detective?” Alexis Bianco found herself staring at a swath of cropped blond hair, the only feature of her assailant visible in the darkness. She mustered a nod. “Then listen good.” Lola’s voice was no more than a whisper but it seemed twisted tight, sinking like a needle into her ear. “Humans are born with a predetermined life span, an allotted number of years to live. Some consume their spans and pass away. Some have their spans prematurely snatched from them by murder or mishap. But some surrender their lives by choice. Humans call it suicide. Tormenta call it opportunity. From their method comes their name. They torment their human prey into giving up their lives.” Bianco swallowed, attempted to speak, but no words came. She licked her lips, easing a path, and tried again. “You—you say these Tormenta walk amongst us . . . in plain sight.” “They are everywhere.” “I’ve never seen one.” “Weren’t you listening?”

Asking What: No More Whys by Wilma Marler Summary
The story of being the victim of threats and related actions served as the predictor of my life journey. My writing about my anger at the outcome of that event led a professor to suggest I change my major from sociology to journalism. Although I did not heed that suggestion, I am following that advice now. I was trapped in my anger, and it seemed every day there was a new inquiry of why this or why that. In changing the question from why to what, I discovered God’s reason for my journey. Questioning the reason for events elicits from God the response children are prone to get from parents—“because I said so” or “because I am your parent.” God is my Father, and I am His child. God received the same response that my parents received to that explanation: I chose to be angry. Once I learned that anger was my choice, God could patiently and lovingly lead me to my ministry. Two days after losing my sister to cancer, I understood the lesson. Being a minister is a title, or label. The “what” of my journey with God is to be available to minister to those individuals He places in my life. Through obedience to God, the “what” in my life became anger of motivation in my life. It was anger that taught me to ask what, and the lesson to be shared with others is start asking “what”.
