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 …

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 …

A Beautiful Mind

Red flags, warning signs, caution signals, though he was simply too sick to see them and properly receive them,    Aside from the sand he’s sinking in, there’s not too much beneath him, bottom feeder, there’s bloods and crips fighting in his cerebrum,   He frowned upon the helpless and homeless, pinky finger stuck out …

The Odd Life Of…

And we would block out the sunrise with black drapes in the most mischievous of hours, Pray the moon is a half-crescent so we could sit upon it discussing how we survived the meteor showers, Underneath us EMS and firetrucks sound off, for miles you could hear the symphony, if only the cold hearts could …

Us and The 4th

Hand him a no. 2 pencil, give him a minute, the transformation’s suspenseful, a slight commotion then he’s half-man, half-creature, With 1 foot in the greenest of meadows, other foot in the meanest of ghettos, it’s only veracious if the spiritual being has an ill-lighted feature, Forgive him if he goes from obscure to luminous, …
