    I took a quick and heated West coast respite and lapsed into a slow and hella kewl East coast chill

    Big headaches - bigger pills; yet Tylenol’s no damned match for this pain of relocation of mind

    West Side chants out of mouths of unknown wannabe gangstas - brain cells fryin’ in life’s fryin’ pan

    East Side deep fried in lard; cloggin’ up veins, arteries, and cerebral tunnels - still I-80 leads East and home bound

    LA - city of angels with plucked wings and bent halos - highest ascension is the high of Rave party ecstasy

    Take a ride wit me to NYC - Take a chomp outta that apple and get ya chill on under the homegrown fruit tree

    Close your eyes and night visualize missed sunny southern delights from "They-ami"; "HotLanta", and like whoa - "Cackalackie"

    Open your eyes while in your daymare and walk the crowded streets of the ghettos of Oaktown; melt in the pot in Frisco; and ride the racial pine with Sac’s favorite Kangs - although not royally speaking that is

    Did I hear some "ignant" West coast fool holla West Side ova the loud speaker?

    Sir, you’re free to move about the cabin now! We have a while before we land in Philly!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Fam,

    My time is slowly but surely winding down here in Cali and on Destee's for a minute...if anyone wants ta get at me, please do so before 31 May - this is the drop dead date I will be temporarily "unplugged" until I make it back East...I expect to be "replugged" sometime in July...peace!

    Love and Respect
