mock-00054Ignorance and racism: One breeds the other. Will you do your part to remove both?

Every day we hear of death in our neighborhoods. No matter if it is by the police or by our own hands. We are burying our people in record numbers and no one seems to have an answer. Not the so-called leaders, not the police. No one. I wish I knew.

This is my attempt to put the word out so that someone, somewhere just might.


Unforeseen Partitions II by Keeta B.

Unforeseen Partitions II continues every bit of the passion and lust from the erotic short stories in part I. Creatively written by Keeta B.


This book is intended to open your mind to love and lust, while tantalizing your inner soul with passion. If you thought the first edition was a hot read, wait until you open this one and begin reading. Cuddle up with a glass of your favorite intoxicating drink, a warm blanket, and candlelight, or with your lover, allowing this book to take you on an erotic ride.

UPII_IG2From the very beginning Renee’ always knew it was a dangerous game getting involved with the boy next door. Rico was living with another woman and had been Renee’s neighbor for approximately three to four years.

Renee’ never wanted to sleep with him, but it was a different story when flirtation turned into lust! What will happen once someone catches feeling? Will egos and pride get in the way of making good choices or will an exasperated sexual drive entice them to do things they both know they shouldn’t?

Author Keeta B. has done it again! Unforeseen Partition II continues with every bit the passion and lust as part one, with new, sexy short stories, erotic poetry and much more!

The Grasshopper humbly bows, again!!! This is Anthony Arnold third book of poetry to be released and we are extremely proud of him. He dedicated this one to his late mother, Marolyn Martin. He describe her as his perfect muse for his gift in writing all the wonderful poetry.

53 by Anthony Arnold

Steamy Trails Publishing wishes Mr. Anthony Arnold that happiest birthday ever and we are proud to share his birthday poetry with our readers on this special day.

53 (My Birthday Piece)

Over a half century I have existed
And by the grace of the almighty
I’ve seen things, experienced more
this is my life in a capsule

May 4th 1961, my born day
My life began
The freedom riders, beaten and jailed
Civil rights, let the young ones begin

As a child the images I saw were of funerals
The Kennedy’s, MLK and Malcolm filled my tv screen
Today the images are the same, just the people have changed
Trayvon, and Justin are two that come to mind

Unrest sparked my formative years
Atlanta, Oakland, and Detroit riots to name a few
My adult years saw more of the same
LA, Miami, and Cincinnati proved we were not free

Younger years, an awakening, my coming out party
Chased by people meant to do me harm, the n-word flowing free
Fast forward to 2012, dressed in suit and tie
Still just a nigger to some, their words said so

Fought for my country, the land of the free, home of the brave
Took down saddam, the new axis of evil
But in some minds, this was Vietnam all over again
Go back to where you came baby killer

Decorated for my service, my time away from home
Retired, thank you good bye now
But it means nothing in the job line
I was another name, another number

So I carry on, my family dwindling
My brothers, my wife, my children all I have left
But she who I treasured most, my muse
Has been called home

53 years on this earth, friends come and gone
My people at times lost
But I will carry on, until I can’t
Until my breathe leaves this vessel

And he calls me and says well done.
