    I write poetry…and listen to good music…to keep the apocalypse from coming down.

    Yeah, I said I write poetry…and listen to head-nod soul-lyric music…to keep the apocalypse from coming down.

    The end times are near when…hip-hop’s been *****-punked…and writings are owned by corporate masters. Black-listed books on watch…cuz they…galvanize anger. Rap music…cusses…and spits and scratches pubic hairs…and smells like subway cement & graffiti spray aerosol…huffing…from the gas-chamber…of ridiculous recording deals and…played-out business models. Poets…in identity crisis…forget they are bringers of truth and…not…conjunction cows & predicate pimps for…adverb adversaries trying to…enunciate…a massive fortune.

    I read 2000 Seasons…and play some Reflection Eternal…to keep the 4 mares from pirating the earth

    Yeah, I said I read 2000 Seasons …and play “Memories Live”…to keep the 4 mares from…stomping hard on the earth.

    Saulwilliamsemceepoetrybluefunkoracletruthspeakingmadness…get out your decoder rings…backpacks & language, floppy disks…and green tea…weed and uptown Saturday night diction…and blast some hip-hop & recite…Achebe lines…to let God know we ain’t…done with the planet yet…let God know…Jesus can put his…luggage back for a few more…generations…and…breakdance in secular prayers to let God see…our drive…to make sure earth doesn’t hurl…into a cyber-MP3downloaded-overcorroded…hell. Retinas…reverse the lightprism entering…your brain…and now…you can see the truth that…this is our world…and it requires more than…neo-polite-put-trash-in-proper-receptacle respect…water ain’t never missed…’til the ****’s…gone.

    I read Octavia Butler…and spin Illmatic…’til the sun becomes nauseous & solar-burns the earth.

    Yeah, I said I read the queen of speculative speech…and spin Nasty Nas…’til the sun catches the runs…and star-bludgeons the earth to death.

    The world that’s under my sneakers…rotates…in a subatomic revolution…houses…my family & friends…is slowly becoming precious to me. Terrorist new-world reality…threatens…the possibility of…conceiving my children in a safe haven but still…gotta tighten up the laces and…tilt…my hat towards the sun & just…keep moving on moving on moooooving on. Life is…polyrhythmic…like poetry & hip-hop…and earth…in its poly-colors & people…is more than urbanized villages & digital dead desires…varicose violence flowing blood-red…war…in-vitro inserted into my life…but still…gotta button up my britches…twist…my ankh ring skyward & just…keep moving on moving on moooooving on…

    I read some Ntozake…and listen to Blackalicious…’til the brimstone precipitates from the clouds.

    I said I read “nappy edges”…and bump “Nia”…’til the brimstone rains down from the
    Cumulus.

    Yeah…and you don’t stop…
