short story slam week 38, Feb 4, 2016 to Feb 21, 2016, Dreams Beyond Rainbow Sky


Barbara Jan Wilson, the chancellor
at Champaign, for university of Illinois

who speaks of valid communication,
in terms of academic excellence, and promotion

with Timothy Killeen backing up,
the UIC flies with wide open wings

a cold day by Lake Michigan,
the beautiful cheers from Chicago, Evanston, Kenosha, and Springfield

we don't know Michael Madigan well,
We do give Richard Daley, Erika Harold, David Neuman a Go!

Elliott Douglas Rodgers feels good about Champaign news,
John Hecker, Sheng Wu, Amelia Wilson, and Maggie Hassan decide to stay calm

lots of places to camp,
many more people to confirm 

university of Miami,
university of Florida, they all rock

child of night by Marjorie Sparkman Jackson

deep in an eerie wood
I wander by mischance
there I found the lambent ring
wherein the fairies dance

a gathering select,
composed of creatures wild
assembled in a circle
around a human child

curious, they each
approached the naked thing,
their good intent was sworn
on oath in the holy ring

they sang a solemn tune
and bore him to an oak,
they placed him in its womb
wrapped in an ancient clock

they all began to dance
in the lambent ring of lights
and blessed the human thing
born from the very night
