    half my i-dentity slipped through the fingers
    of my grandfather in to the back woods
    of North Carolina’s cold mountains
    never connected its self to father
    so i am fumbled finger with numbness
    barely able to grip this newfound history
    this craddle of evolution, has demented seed
    that i reckon

    trying to rotate its place into some characterization

    my reality and fiction is mixed,
    ‘cos all i remember is Mama
    her struggles and father looks like me,
    but trans-parent
    i hug my soul for staying close to home,
    to the streets of Pittsburgh,
    i i-mprint my spirit
    before the washing of the brain, occurs
    i belong, somewhere else
    my culture determined it’s self-long, before.
    almost prehistoric, when God willed me life
    i was molded like the likeness of him

    i am gonna send a hologram
    that i am full off my other side
    so it will send a telegram to
    break branches from the oak tree,
    sow them to the torso of time
    its pending greatness, i taste it's nectar
    flowing like hot lava ready to explode

    my i-dentity cannot be defined
    in the form of fleshy cells
    casted over in battle dressings,
    counting pulses soaked in biscuits
    only tipping scales to birth

    my i-dentity is pulsating scripts on waterfalls
    dripping into my aura, one tear at moment
    latching on tilted wampum
    slow on djembes down thighs,
    in the foot-prints of, I.

    this was a very deep journey of self actualization
    and no, that journey is not defined by the form
    of fleshy cells, it never is....

    loved this very beautifully crafted expression of identity...



    (funny you would mention Pittsburgh, I have roots there)
