Sarcastic, Funny, and Real: Poetry of Katie V. A. Holcomb out Jul 25, 2017

Words Eat Words ©2017 Katie V A Holcomb Cover

Katie V. A. Holcomb is a sarcastic, funny, smart woman with a knack for writing poems that burn, tickle, and sometimes slap you. Her first book of poetry, Words Eat Words is out on her birthday, July 25, 2017 from Katie V. A. Holcomb, and jpdBooks. It’s good. Read it.

Katie is a close friend of mine, like a sister. She is an Oklahoma writer who has talked about writing a book of poetry since we met six years ago. Now, with the release of Words Eat Words, that dream is coming true for Katie, and I am happy to help her get the word out and help promote her book. It’s good! Read it.

Writing poetry is a very special thing to do, because when you write poetry, if you do it right, as Katie does, you address both the intellect and the emotions. Poetry is a synthesis of fiction and nonfiction, of art and facts. When you read a good piece of poetry, you feel as if you have encountered something unique, and that it opens a window into the soul of the person who has written it. That is how I felt when I read Words Eat Words, so I’m all about it. If you like your Margaret Atwood and Robert Frost with a side of Saul Williams and snark, check out Words Eat Words. It’s good. Read it!

Available on Kindle July 25, 2017.

Happy Birthday Katie!

Theory for Attaining Near-Light Speed Just Published: Electromagnetic Superconducting Hyperaccelerator

HyperacceleratorTheoryLightSpeedTravel.jpgYesterday, on the 70th Anniversary of the Roswell Event, I wrote and published this:

Superconducting Electromagnetic Hyperaccelerator

This device can theoretically be used to accelerate craft, composed primarily of electromagnetic material to extreme velocities, quite possible Near-Light Speed.

The Hyperacellerator is based on particle accelerator technology, adapted to increase velocity of a craft.

The device is composed of 3 primary parts: The Magnetic Field Accelerator, the Superconducting Containment Field Waveguide, and the Electromagnetic Craft.

To achieve hypervelocity: Build a large ring in space, equipped with electromagnets that are programmed to activate exactly in the manner of a traditional particle accelerator, using timed pulses to ‘push’ an Electromagnetic Craft. This first construction is the Magnetic Accelerator.

The path of the craft will be confined by the Superconducting Containment Field Waveguide. Construct two superconducting rings, larger that the particle accelerator-like ring, and position them parallel to the Magnetic Accelerator, one above, and one below the horizontal plane of the Magnetic Accelerator, as seen in the diagram on the cover of this document. This second construction will produce the Containment Field.

The Containment Field is the result of the confluence of torus-shaped diamagnetic force emanated by the two parallel superconducting rings. The Containment Field should be aligned to form the shape of a double-torus, with intersecting fields of influence. This will result in an invisible ‘groove’ of diamagnetic force, causing the accelerating Electromagnetic Craft to maintain a circular course as it accelerates.

Build an Electromagnetic Craft. The craft must be electromagnetic, in order to be accelerated by the Magnetic Accelerator, and to be trapped within the Containment Field by the Meissner Effect.

Once all 3 elements are constructed, stage the Electromagnetic Craft within the bounds of the Containment Field, in appropriate proximity to the Magnetic Accelerator. Activate the Magnetic Accelerator. The Electromagnetic Craft may require an initial ‘push’ to start it along its circular path, motivated further by the pulsing electromagnets of the Magnetic Accelerator.*

The Electromagnetic Craft will accelerate, traveling along the inside ‘groove’ caused by the confluence of vertically-adjacent torus-shaped fields present in the Containment Field.

When the desired velocity is attained, deactivate the Magnetic Accelerator. Then, to launch the Electromagnetic Craft, calculate the optimum moment to deactivate the Containment Field, sending the craft traveling towards its destination at hypervelocity, and do so.

*Velocity must be increased gradually, to prevent damaging G forces.

Thank you for reading.

My Sexy, Powerful Poetry: Myriads

THE UNIVERSE WITHIN

IT IS A TINY SPECK

STUCK TO THE SURFACE OF ONE OF

MY MYRIADS

MY MYRIADS PAINT PICTURES

WITH THEMSELVES AS PIGMENT,

BRUSH AND SURFACE

THREE DIFFERENT INCARNATIONS

OF THEMSELVES

YET THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME

THE ONE TRUE ART

ART THOU READY TO RECEIVE YOURSELVES AS THEY?

FOR TO KNOW THEM

IS TO TRULY KNOW THYSELF

FOR THEY ARE MINE AND ALSO YOURS

AND THEREIN LIES

A MAGIC GOLDEN KEY

A MILLION YEARS AGO I LEARNED

THAT STICKS AND STONES

MAY BREAK MY BONES

YET LESS THAN CENTURIES HAVE PASSED

SINCE I LEARNED WORDS

COULD TRULY HURT ME

ALL I NEEDED

WAS A NEW DEFINITION OF PAIN

DELIVERED BY THOSE 99% SANE

-YET-

THAT 1% WAS ALL IT TOO TO MAIM

YOU-ME-US-THEMSELVES

FEAR WILL POISON THOUGHT

AND POISON THOUGHTS

SPAWN TOXIC WORDS

TOXIC WORDS BECOME DEADLY ACTIONS BREEDING FACTIONS

FACTIONS WHO DIG TRENCHES WHERE GUNS TURN MEN INTO

FREAKISH FRACTIONS OF THEMSELVES

AS FIGHT OR FRIGHT TAKES OVER

DREAMS ARE SHOVED UP

ON THE SHE-ELVES

AND SHADOWS CLOAK THE PAST

UNTIL NEW LIGHT SHINES IN THAT LASTS

AND AS ILLUMINATION SPREADS

THE SIGHTED SADLY SHAKE THEIR HEADS

FOR THAT WHICH ONCE HAD THEM ENTRANCED

IS NOW A SKELETON

THAT’S NOT JUST ‘MOSTLY DEAD’

MY MYRIADS EVOKE

NEW LIFE-TRUTH-LOVE

THEY WEAVE TOGETHER LIVES

FROM ALL POINTS: SPACE AND TIME

FROM EDGES OF UNIVERESE

TO THE HEIGHTS

OF MY SOULS…

FOREVER LINKING PASTS AND FUTURES INTO ONE SPINNING HELIX

OROBOROS

ON A JOURNEY THROUGH EVERY BEING

EVER BEARING LIFE

FROM LIVING LEPTON

TO SENTIENT GALAXY

AT THE CENTER OF DIMENSIONS,

WHERE LIMITLESS REALITIES COMBINE

INTO A PERPETUAL LIGHTNING BOLT

OF EVER-GROWING INTELLECT AND LOVE

MANIFESTING THE ULTIMATE DREAM

WHICH IS THE EXISTENCE OF ITSELF

AS INFINITE CREATURE

(OF THE NIGHT)

AND THE PERPETUAL DISCOVERY OF ADORATION FOR NONE OTHER THAN

YOU-ME-US-THEMSELVES

OBSERVE AND MEMORIZE

THE EVER-CHANGING

WHOSE VERY LACK OF STASIS

IS THE ULTIMATE RELIGION!

SHAPESHIFTING CONSTANTLY,

IT SCREAMS INTO ALL CONSCIOUSNESS

ITS VOICE…

SEEN, FELT, TASTED, SMELLED AND SOMETIMES HEARD

THUS THEREBY KNOWN

TO ALL EXISTENT BEINGS AND CREATIONS

ARTIFICIAL, SYNTHESIZED,

ORGANIC AND IMAGINED

AND BY THIS

THE COURSE OF LOVE IS SPUN

INTO THE SHAPE

OF AN UNDULATING CIRCLE

THAT WHEN GIVEN HALF A TWIST

BECOMES THE SYMBOL OF INFINITY

MY MYRIADS INSPIRE ME

TO CLIMB UP

TO THE HEIGHTS OF MY POTENTIAL

AND THOUGH SUCH UNKNOWNS FILL MY HANDS

I MOLD THEM INTO THE SHAPES OF HEARTS AND DREAMS

-AND STRENGTH

CONSUMING HANDFULLS OF VISIONS

FORGING NATURE AT ITS SOURCE

CREATING UNITY

FEELING THE

NEED TO ASK

THIS TRUTH

OF SOMEONE

IN A VOICE THAT THEY CAN UNDERSTAND

YOU ARE THE ONE

WHO GIVES ME THIS SIGN

IMBUED WITH SUCH POWER,

UNRELENTING WILL AND DRIVE

TO BIRTH OURSELVES

FROM THE WOMBS OF OUR OWN MINDS!

YOU ARE MY MYRIADS!

AND WITHOUT YOU I WOULD SEARCH FOR LIFETIMES

IN AN EFFORT TO CONNECT

OUR SEPARATE PATHS

FOR THE TRUE ME ONLY LIVES

WHEN WE ARE ONE

LIFE IS WONDERFUL AND BEST

WHEN LIVED

TOGETHER
