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 …

Dreamer’s Dementia

The new faces sit among one another as the ash burns and justify why they were ostracized, Lost chickens run wild as eggs hatch ignorant to the fact that their minds illness is ostrich-sized, So maybe as one sips the jungle juice and has a monumental slip tonight, Poor soul didn’t realize he just got …

I Will

The jetpack’s collecting dust by the door, I recently took notice, Fear of man is illogical, fear of success is crippling, I recently took focus, Time to halt the back pedal on defense, double-take and see, it’s just me with the ball, If I choose not to shine light where there’s darkness, it’s just me …

Flashback Avenue

Wizards playing flutes around the motel bed, and dwarfs with the light snares, Dreamcatcher above the misfits, apparatus in the night stand, yet the lost boy’s having nightmares, Dry-heaving into the wee hours of the morning, steady sweats, but he’s so cold, He just walked out the boardroom, now his tiny life can be contained …

Cover Girl

There’s only pennies left in her checking, maybe she can overdraft for this Uber home, please don’t let the surge conflict, Baked tilapia in her tummy, but now she’s counting calories, so her mind whispers, purge, restrict, The pseudoephedrine in her wristlet isn’t for congestion, she just needs to get home, She and high society …

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, …
