    I wish I could paper clip each clever thought I have to my back pocket
    I wish I could keep them fresh and make them seem brand new in my newest piece like I just birthed it with you standing there looking at me
    Because I’m not really a poet
    You would have me to be some planned poetic nightmare because I never used my bare thoughts to catch your hateful glare.
    I would transform every thought papercliped to my poetic air and throw it at you with every breath I loose and this time I would offer a truce with my pre written verse
    I would memorize my notes I would practice my stance and love how the delivery would make you **** in your pants
    But it won’t faze you it can’t faze you
    Because I’m not really a poet
    I’m this fake *** chick that could never relinquish to real poets under the circumstance of free verse
    I’m a pre-innovator who’s talent goes as far as a box without holes
    I’m a pre-innovator who will never exceed gold
    Until I enter the platinum ring where you think it and spit it
    In unison
    But because I think about my message and rearrange my text I’m the next best thing to a
    Poet
    Free verse I will continue to linger below it
    Because I’m not really a poet

    shoot, just because you can't think of it on the spot doesn't mean it isn't poetry! mine have to marinate for a while too, but then i know when they are done that they are just what i want them to be. you keep writing, girl!

    den keep comin wit da free verse
    and stay fully submersed
    in da flow
    if that's how you think first
    den be da first to let it go
    whether it be fast or slow
    or even turbo
    you gotta know
    labels are for mental hobos
    flavor is flavor
    just like you throw elbows
    follow'n billy blanks and tae bo
    or findin piss in beds
    of cats on sudden death row
    peace
