.....taken from a actual conversation.

Uncle, I have this poetry with you in mind..
I want to show you my metaphors
And fluidity of line....


"Boy, you aint said a **** thang....
Using them big words and weirdo slang...
Give me a poem that fights and bites..
Something like Mr. Leroi Jones would write."


"I need one that cant stop, dont stop, wont stop.
Something that scats and swings like bebop...
I need something that moves my soul,
Have me sweating at midnight going "Whoaaa"


But Uncle, I work within the bounds of
What is aliterative and formal....

"Yea, yea, yea, shaddup and give me something normal"

"Give me something I can understand,
Talk to me direct, cause Im a simple man.
Dont wanna hear bout the light of yo soul, right now.
It's time to party, boy..show me how"

Er..po me a drank..."

"Give me something that vibes and swings..
Give me royalty, like Duke or Prince, or 'Reatha the Queen
"Nature, Liberation of yo Soul....yea, yea, yea...all that's true...
But I want something spicy, like Tito Puente or Cecila Cruz"



"See, the problem with you poets today....
Cain't call the sky blue, gotta say "azure grey"...
And did'nt azure grey live down on Monroe Skreet?
****, forgot what I was talkin bout...oh yea, ya poetry."


"Now I'se got no problem with big words and edumacation, that' true,
But sometimes you gotta adjust to the crowds and who ya talkin to.


But Uncle, surely you dont mean I dilute my work?
"Boy, you aint made a **** dime...
And that's bout all it's worth."

"Now po me a drank."

I enjoyed this, the realism of it. Sorta reminds me of conversations I would have with my grandmother years ago. She would tell you, I knew you when, in a second, lol.

Thanks.
Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
