    Woven to blend
    from the garments
    of a rapid race
    creating the loss
    of what
    we as a people find hard
    to live by;
    or even harder to come by
    ~ and it's called time
    representing the structure
    of the all-to-familiar "ghetto"
    loosely knitted together
    with abandoned buildings
    poverty, and high crime...
    dangling by tattered threads
    but close enough to see and watch
    nihilism spread

    Where is the fiber of
    quality life and vitality
    is it dimensionally distinct -
    or is it
    non-dimensionally extinct?

    Think about the texture of
    the material we as a people
    are given to sew with
    cause the answer may not only
    lay within the fabric
    it may just be the feel of the
    grain emitted from the yarn...
