Blackbirds

Now you lay me down to sleep, in the night these visions, thoughts, and whispers creep, They say life’s a dream, or maybe this nicotine patch is at its peak, this is either real life or inception until my alarm is set to beep, Tell that teen in Tulsa to take a moment, but if …

In This Moment

The introduction to the first drink, it was as sweet as General Tso’s and Sunkist, Out of pocket from first sight, it’s like I didn’t hesitate to spin the bottle, but then we tongue kissed, An eternal gratitude list and God is forever number one, script aside it a bold asterisk, They told me kneel …

Calculated Miracles

Nissin cup noodles or tuna poke bowls, in the end it was all choices, the irony of closely reflecting on self-loathing, that’s love, Insecure at the purple store because I know you peeped my rib cage piercing through this Marathon white-tee, please excuse my complexion, that’s drugs, Shades drawn, unforgiving stink, malnutrition, dreading sun-rays  bouncing …

Witness

He jumped, he soared, he leaped and pulled the sneakers off the power lines, His hand me downs don’t define him, he seeks a better life through empowered eyes, Your “you cant’s” fuel his why’s, where you fall short, is where he flies, His Jumpman stitching’s off, so you judged him, his clothes small, so …

The Plug

Degraded, dehydrated, frustrated, deflated, sedated, logic vacated, agitated, humiliated, suffocated, that was us at our finest hour,   That light bulb was always illuminated overhead, his soul was too blackened to search for the plug that could connect him to the higher power,   Watch them dance on one another, see them wave their hands in the air, why does this make …

Turf Wars & French Fries

I’m sorry, my deepest apologies Roc for that day I crashed into your Beamer, I guess I got lost in my junkie starter kit,   Maybe if I..happen to come across a misplaced iPhone, I could possibly have chico jailbreak it and I can barter it,   Was I just unlucky, am I just indifferent, …

Long Nights In The Del

So it isn’t all black and white, it isn’t just logic, when my people fall in Miami Heat, it isn’t just Dragic,   Wise men move in silence, they judge me by heart and soul, it isn’t all diamonds and pearls, it isn’t my pockets,   It’s always the ill-informed that are quick to clash …

Thailand 13

Tears over mininum wage, pout over the break-up, frustration over the tiny whisper in our heads, we pray it behaves,   Thirteen treatment centers, thirteen charges, thirteen severed relationships, whine about it to thirteen boys shivering deep in caves,   Molehills into mountains, stubbed toes into shattered feet, flat tires into totalled vehicles, cry about …

Drink

She’s playing hypnotic hymns on that glass fiddle, pour out chardonnay to the memory of our fallen friends, this is life’s riddle,   Cupid shot an arrow and it struck a catch-22, even behind them tattoos and hard parts them boys are sensitive, this is my scribble,   There’s blood in the water, these many …
