(Last Poem....For Now)

July is crunch time  in regards to some goals that I "NEED" to accomplish by the year's end. Therefore, all artistic energy will be focused on the album, book and other endeavors. 2010 is suppose to be the year "I" win, so its time to kicked that into gear. So with that said...........

(10:15 Pm)

Cleaning out my box of nostalgia,
I stumbled on old road signs from memory lane.
It was populated with various faces and
Kind eyes that were now gone in a blink!
Photographs turned into Negatives
Handwriting that is now an illegible script
For acts I wish had encores
Burnt Bridges Whose Remains Are Forever
Lost in The Tides of Time...
And The Only Food For Thought
I am  Left With ? 
Spoiled pride and awkward "Hello(s)"
I will never utter...
Because they would stand out
Like Technicolor Bows at Black Tie Affiars.

Later That Night....

Looking at a clock with no hands,
Do I even deserve one?
Why didn't it shake  me to see  that my tendency
To "cut off" would leave me with lacerations?
Time reels all wounds...
These passengers.......These Passengers
Have hitchhiked to other sides without...without
Leaving any trails....Man Can Not Live
On Bread Crumbs Alone.

I'm the only one on this road.
I boasted about wanting it to be this way...
Sometimes You Shouldn't
Get What You Wish For....

Moral: Never Listen To Mike Tyson When it Comes to Complimenting Women.   

Song of The Week (Bi-Weekly)

I swear, Ski-Beatz has to be one of the most criminally underrated producers in hip-hop today! This genius was responsible for not one but two wonderfully composed songs (Feelin It and Dead Presidents II) on arguably, Jay-Z's  best album Reasonable Doubt.Not to mention this mad virtuoso was behind Camp Lo's classic debut album Uptown Saturday Night. I'm still waiting to catch some Luchini from the sky even though I have no idea what I would be getting myself into. Ski's latest offering is our song of the week. Ski samples The Persuaders A Thin Line Between Love and Hate and somehow created a somber island backdrop that is so lush, you can feel the sand between your toes. Add Mos Def's laid back yet poignant delivery coupled with cautionary lyrics, and you have a sure fire underground hit.I could do without the second verse, but hey, Hall had Oats right???

Bonus: Here is what I was inspired to write while listening to this track on repeat for days:

Guess the lies sound sweeter than Truth/
We Hide Evidence While Ignoring  the Proof/
Get Me a Cab Take Me Out of This Place/
Pass Me a Drink ,Feeling Parched in My Race/

Two-Stepping Never Gave us Much Progress
Running in This Maze Everyday in This Project
Struggling just to get Inanimate Objects
Writing on The Wall Like Its' Scripted By The Prophets

But, There's Still  Words Missing,
And Even if they Weren't, Rarely We Ever Listen
Too Short to Reach The Height of Most Heavens
So What's the Fare Driver,  Six Maybe Seven ??
For a Cruise Down These Mean City Blocks/
Door of opportunity,school of hard knocks/
Where is Swagger, Not Skill  That Get You  Some Sort of  Fame/
So Your Birth Doesn't Guarantee You'll Ever Get a Name/
Such a Shame, You Can Take a Left Turn/
Wait a Second, Let This Cigarette Burn
Never Mind,Make a Stop at The Light.....
And When it Turns Green, We Commence With The Fight
Against Enemies...Invisible Features...
Seat Belt Fasten,Carrying Heaters
A.C.'s Broken, Got  Wind of Situation...
