Deeper Than a Hashtag 

Black people I must say that until you begin to truly value yourself more than anything they will continue to fear you and kill you over the simplest things, and ultimately you’ve got to stop resisting because living matters far more than the arresting reality of a bullets sting opening deaths door.

The 4th of July 

​Driving home along route 41 the lonely abode my car afforded was no sanctuary for long lost love, no it was as profound a statement as the fire works raining down from above, in memory of the day our country won yet my people were lost.

A Poem for Pulse

The noise of death filled the air as he reloaded, groan after groan, clip after clip and screams exploded, filling rooms where music no longer induced dance movement and lively gyration, the floor became a death bed of bloody damnation, spilling out and filling spaces where I saw myself in the eyes of the black and brown faces.

What I Long For

I can taste a future together with you, woman, it is that serious. Here I am swallowing stacks of memories we have just begun creating so you can linger on my mind a little longer even though I hate waiting.

Your Imperfections Are What Make You Beautiful

You are the finest thing
I have ever laid my eyes in
Not on because your worth
Is not defined by
That tiny hair under your chin

Fake News Matters

The news is no longer news worthy to me. Constantly torn by subjective images on TV. Black lives matter while black on black crime staggers and the state of the economy and inflation continues to lose swagger.

It’s Not What You Think

Stuck on a presidency for the first time in history
Yet still won’t read, steady forgetting the past
But you’ll run to the theater to see
Django Unchained’s black ass
How about the chemtrails are seeding
The clouds are no longer keeping
The air we breathe safe

She Doesn’t Love You

The reality is that agreeing to have sex with your ex provides only one person with what they truly want – a limited, unemotional physical connection (no strings attached) vs. an open door back into the relationship with the one they love.

Anatomy of a Broken Heart

There’s this period where you just feel numb and find yourself staring at your cell phone or computer screen, having super trippy, intro-to-psychology-type thoughts like, “She can’t find her happiness with me because she isn’t happy with herself.”

Shambala

Brushes of silky smooth
Skin against mine
Leaving a trail of the wettest ale
You are the epitome of fine wine
