  333.     

Is This The War Of The Worlds? Or How To Get Burnt In Lost Wages, Nevada.

No it isn't Darth Vader, it's the Vdara,
It is the terrestrial parabolic shape that houses lost souls or I say souls that lost,
Whether it be craps, slots, blackjack, baccarat on Canasta.
It seems as though the one of grand poopahs on the strip, MGM,
Had mis-designed the architecture of this enormous hotel,
The design flaws made it a death ray,
-and it burnt the guests by the pool side, practically everyone and caused plastic melting.

Guests at a new hotel in Las Vegas have complained of receiving severe burns from a 'death ray' of sunlight caused by the unique design of the building.

Who'd ever thought, who'd ever know,
That the rays from the desert sun would rain down upon them in concentrated form.

Due to the concave shape of the Vdara hotel, the strong Nevada sun reflects off its all-glass front and directly onto sections of the swimming pool area below.

Chicago attorney Bill Pintas felt the power of the dangerous ray first hand last week.
Bill is not a tree hugger nor a sooth-sayer
'It felt like I had a chemical burn. I couldn't imagine why my head was burning, ' he said.
'Within 30 seconds, the back of my legs were burning. My first though was, 'Jesus, they destroyed the ozone layer! '
He was lucky he had gone through spontaneous combustion.

Gordon Absher, a spokesman for MGM Resorts, which owns the Vdara hotel, said they was aware of the issue and designers were working with resort staff to come up with a solution.

In fact it is claimed that the designers foresaw the issue with the reflecting sun but thought they had solved it by installing a high-tech film on the south-facing panes of glass.

Not only do they take your money, they will burn your ass.

  334.     

In North America.

Chicago, Milwaukee
Door County, Ra seen..
Get the great cities
Along the blanks of Michigan.
Museum..Sky scrappers..
These lights glow
Till oil is over.
In the Dael Illinois
Smell the evergreen
Underworld merchants
In India, Mumbai is the bird.
In America, it is another
Which is the image?
Which is the mirror image? ?
Snow-flux will drab
As the snow-fall begins
Come to Door County
To experience astonishing fall season.
Stand on the blanks of
Freaking Michigan
Knowledge mountain peaks are visible.
Connive.. With bards like skyscrapers.

  335.     

Mother And Daughter

tonight i have a good image
when mom and daughter finally meet at the airport
somewhere in Chicago

she brings her favorite goodies
from the Philippines islands

once a year, once again
the bonding begins

she teaches her what happiness brings
she tells her stories about what missing is all about

she is taken back to all those years of her youth
she edifies her goddess of love

inside the house the talking of their own language
can be heard as a chatter of two strange birds

outside it is snowing
inside the fire begins to burn

and the young children watch them
awed, amazed, delighted, so delighted.

Flying

Flying

The feathers would flutter in the wind like and angels.
The wings would lift me off this Hell they call Earth.
And Bring me to the sky...
Let me glide high above the others.

I'd be beautiful.
I'd be a miracle.
My wings soft as satin
Soft as velvet.

I'd fly from coast to coast
Pole to Pole.
Nothing would stop me
not even the winds of Chicago.
Not even the missiles in the places of war.
I'd never stop
Just to get away from everyone else.

Adrenaline, oh the adrenaline rushing through my veins.
It's not from trouble
it’s from the wind furling the feathers.
I open my eyes to the nasal ring of an alarm clock.
And oh how I wish it was from the wind flowing through my fiery red hair
