    ( I was feeling LONELY POET when I wrote this)

    CAPPACHINO

    looking for love in the
    bottom of a mug of

    cap-cap-cappachino
    I'm feeling illmatic and
    bummed out
    all at the same time
    in the smoke (cheap lucky strike smoke) filled
    room of coffee shop chicks
    and white dudes

    I'm in my own little
    black (black and mild rhythm and blue black) world
    writing my interpretation of
    my life in
    purty pictures

    when the hit took place

    right outside the panoramic window
    (the two way reality proof window)
    it looked like the fourth of july
    the rocket red and blue glare of
    flashing lights

    didn't even here the explosion
    just saw coffee shop chicks and
    white dudes run to the window
    mugs and cigarettes in hand
    red and blue lights flashing across their
    faces (their black and white parental guidance stickered faces)

    ++++ POLICE LINE ++++++++DO NOT CROSS+++++

    I returned to my mug of
    cap-cap-cappachino
    and my black and purty (rated R NR 17 black and purty)
    world where

    that type of **** happens
    everyday

    It happens so much we write
    love songs
    to the high pitch screams (the glaring red and blue
    screams) of sirens
    laughing at the comedic black noire of our
    black and purty lives

    (to be continued......it doesn't feel like i'm finished... holla back)

    Do Continue with this flow...I am ready for the show!

    This was classic African American art...from the eyes of one who knows and from a world that always shows that life for us...
