can i kick it

can i kick it

like bambaataa on cassette

krazy legz on cardboard

shell top adidas

like five foot assassin

watching the window

between hippin

and hoppin

like a dungeon

hot

with thirty emcees

sweatin blood

for the love of cadillac musik

and live

orientation
orientation

stay black

that is

beyond ahead of the curve

the curve bender

the angle maker

steeply intrinsically literally

rooted in suns

hewn from earth

sibling to the wolf

to the air

to unknown

stay too intentional

to fit in round boxes

look awkward in uniforms that

don’t fit the form

unfit for a god

while becoming who you are

stay free

to love

to build

free as a function

reflective of rivers

at the center of humanity

teeming with more life than oceans

and live

that is

stay live

be lit

keep it trill

and soulshining in a garden of

bad substitutes

my negus

and live

chocolate addict

fiend
fiend

i can’t get past your aesthetic

hope you don’t mind

i got married for

the lifetime supply of chocolate

you just

overflow with loveliness

quencher of this manhood

attracted to the cocoa

dripping just south

from the center of your soul

eatables

i hate a late breakfast

and i don’t like brunch

but i sure do like

dinner for lunch

a juicy porterhouse

with red potatoes at noon

blackberry merlot

six hours too soon

i like creamy peanut butter

with strawberry preserves

at two in the morning

just to balance my nerves

whole wheat bread

for the love of texture

food made and eaten

in the seat of my affections

trill

artesian
artesian

she could cuss you clean

and get god to move

a mountain

a bullet

a meth lab

too

did things

quick to get other folk killed

she never played a part

always fit the bill

sunrise in the bittermost winter

upon behest

warm and penetrating

just like her request

wind and hail subside

for the kids to go to school

she was real

she was true

she wrote the damn rules
