    We put language in zoos
    To observe caged thought
    And toss peanuts and p-funk
    At intellect
    And mothfuckas think these are metaphors
    I speak what I see
    All words and worlds are metaphors of me
    My life is offered by the moon
    My footprints written in soil
    The fountain pen of mar Sean men
    Unavailing human toil
    And yes the soil speaks highly of me
    When earth seeds root me poet-tree
    We forest forever for recitation

    Im a star…this life’s a suburb
    I commute
    Make daily runs between the sun and the inside of me

    We are not earthlings
    We once drank moonshine on mars
    And mistook media for stars
    Cause we was drunk and couldn’t hold our liquor
    God and I are one
    so that means god is u

    And the ground on which u walk
    is the tunnel from which I talk
    I speak the seeds up the trees up
    Like when bush blew up new york
    Forum streets have never claimed me
    That’s way I never write like u
    U better walk your path, you better do your math
    Cause if your screw face from what I said
    It will only make the Buddha laugh
    Even if u know these lessons u don’t know the half

    hmmm....EVEN I, knowing the line formations on the inner palms of the hands of this author,
    EVEN I...who knows the mind, heart and soul of
    the poet beneath the emerging brilliance of this piece...almost missed it
    and "Didn't know the half"...

    This read much like a riddle, for some reason...and I had to read it slow
    allowing my mind to absorb the meaning after each line
    and when I did that...it suddenly clicked
    and I realized...I really didn't know the half

    some of these lines...particularly the first stanza...was deep
    and the part about the God within us being the channel through which you speak...
    No...the forum streets have never owned you "obviously"...which makes u so unique

    and this piece...is so deep beneath the surface
    that if your lungs and conciousness aren't up for the depth...
    it will get crushed in the effort to process....

    I'm diggin you... :kickball: and your mind, how it works... (the poetry...too :read: )
