    Tell the universe I am calling

    When i was a baby and couldn't speak

    the universe gave me words

    and when i was searching for away to feed my kids

    poetry gave me verse

    the overwhelming passion to rehearse metaphors to bust your soul wide open

    pick locks to unlock memories you mind forced you to forget like that time your uncle and dad ripped there manhood in the opening of your innocence or the first time a women made you feel like your insides were being picked by vultures

    see past the illusion because we are loosing our vision

    we cant walk straight but

    we want to make love with passion

    how are we supposed to know which direction the moon shines if we never stopped to look up and see how beautiful our eyes are

    to busy trying to please them

    to busy trying to get them to love you

    when its clear to everyone around you that you dont even love you

    gazing at the stars wondering why infinity is so timeless because it only sees itself

    so on those rare nights when crickets break out there pianos and play Mozart in Ajax harmony

    understand that everything your life is can be summed up in eternity as simply a half of a moment divided from touch

    decimal whispered through a coffee straw in a homeless mans hands

    amethyst tumbled from the black goddess hands so we chip easy

    and some of us have never recovered

    you see them every day

    they walk around like in there world the sun shines at night

    when there body is abandoned

    and you don't have to look to far beneath e the surface to see this

    but your going to have to go deeper than the surface to heal this

    reshape bones and use them for wings take the rings from Saturn and wear them proudly because they belong to you

    and when i asked myself how do i write a world i want my kids to live in

    i started to sink into the paper like i was ink

    hear stories trees forgot in the silence of the pavement

    knew why secrets were strong enough for men but were made for women

    found uncharted territories in my arm pits

    so i can hug truth and speak a freedom i have never known before

    blend into verbs call me nouns nick name me spoken word

    spit through wires so nervous systems stop being nervous and accept the messages that took centuries to formulate just so they could role of a tongue that used to stupor uncontrollable and make it look effortless

    this is broken down binary

    mystic buddahisim

    a rebel bee that refused to rape pollen

    a quarter on the floor of a bus stop that is wondering why people keep walking by

    that side of yourself that is only light

    to be remembered in orgasms

    and on the day i realized my daughter was a genius

    i wanted to give myself on stage so these strangers will know they heard something tonight they could take to there graves

    i heard a voice from an old man with no tongue because he gave me his when i was born

    that lives in the farest galaxy of my knee cap

    saying the mics you step infront of only represent the thousands of people that did not hear the message

    so dont worry about the ones that do

    you are just the arrhythmical stuffed into flesh and i know it gets uncomfortable at times for the rhythms you manifest to only have your heart as the base line

    stay still

    you are just the messenger

    you are just the code breaker

    you are just the truth

    There is so much that we look at, but don't really see. Your visuals simply leap off the page dear poet. Wonderfully, vividly, written.
