    second hand weed contact smoke
    renders my head dizzy with world-changing potential--
    shots of light rum start me to thinking bout what life would be liike if people stopped looking and
    started to listen

    if people--
    stopped seeing and started expressing--

    if

    grief and peace were segregated--

    and if--
    you loved me.

    if guns were never made and I was still in Africa--
    would I still write poetry?
    would I be royalty?
    Hopefully.
    but,
    unfortunately--

    u don't love me--
    i'm not in Africa--
    i'm not royalty--
    and
    guns and people kill people...

    but
    I
    can
    change
    the
    world.

    sean.

    In agreement...

    ...with Poetic and the RICHNESS. Your pieces always seem to capture me, and compel me, almost as if, I'm in a trance. Your depth is moving, truly...
