*This piece was written earlier this evening
upon request...


The harder I love,
The dumber you get.
This is not rocket science,
But L-O-V-E
Arithmetic.

I didn’t divide me.
I uncovered my soul
And gave you
Two halves of me.
Do the math.

When I committed to our love,
I gave you one fourth faith,
One fourth honesty,
One fourth honor,
And one fourth trust.
But I nourished the
Whole of our being.
While you viciously
Widened the circumference
Of the hole in my heart.

Yep,
I was a sucker...
But now I’m doing the math.

Statistics indicate
That I should stay.
Although I’m expected to go
And make those numbers grow.

Part of my heart remembers
Half of the good years
And half of the great times.
Divided.

I sometimes long to
Be near you.
Caress you and
Kiss you
Softly until my body
Trembles at the thought of
Losing you.
Or losing it -
Exponential carnal desires
For your flesh?

No.
Instead of loving a part of you,
And hurting all of me,
I’m walking away from
The whole you -
Sadly, a part of me too.
Do the math.

The harder I loved,
The dumber you got - about love.
It wasn’t rocket science,
But L-O-V-E
Arithmetic.

Fearless In Flip Flops

Short and brown
With an unmatched beanstalk demeanor.
Ashy legs, lacking Vaseline Sunscreen
Owned by a skinny lil’ dude with
Worn flip flops on his feet.

Fearlessly he overtakes the pavement
The grass and sand dunes.
He’s Hannibal on his scooter.
Flip flops on his ashy feet

Climbing, running, falling
Running, falling, climbing
Falling, climbing running

The hot climate melts fire.
His forehead bleeds sweat,
But his breathing & yelling
Sing a joyful noise
“Tag you it!”
Flip flops on his ashy feet

Climbing, running, falling
Running, falling, climbing
Falling, climbing running

“Hey mama, I’m over here!”
He waves from the highest peak
Of his Mt. Everest
Made of steel, plastic,
Shaky wooden bridges, and squeaky swings.
He’s climbed it a zillion times.
Flip flops on his tired ashy feet.

Climbing, running, falling
Running, falling, climbing
Falling, climbing running…

I’ll never forget,
The summers that you played
Fearlessly with flip flops
On your ashy little feet.

Where is Poetry?


Months ago you used to be so close to me.

We used to hang tight, late at night with

the Mighty Pen

And Weathered Notebook.


Up to no good, consuming old thoughts

About my old hood, juggling metaphors,

Hard rhymes and similes.

Now it’s like we are best friends who

Don’t communicate anymore,

But find the comfort of solitude a bit more soothing.


Where is Poetry?


Dedicated to Guru & Gang Starr's Legacy

ERYKAH BADU - Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)

I usually don't (post lyrics)... but poetry is a song, is lyrics, is hip hop, it is the cloudy or organized alphabet that makes love to our ears. Enjoy your Munny honey! brown ;-)

Get Munny [4x]

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [2x]

Eww can't lie to you honey
I just want your money
Hi answer me Munny
Don't run from me trying to
Get away just stay ok
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

I look like a model
I'll do what I gotta do
to stay in the running cause I want your money
Give me some
I'll be the one back stage
cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]

I'll wait on your doorstep
Till you let me come in
Hey I'll be your best friend
Say Munny can you come out and
play I'll stay or I'll come back
Cause Munny I want you back

Fresher than the others
I'll cook like your Mother

You just bring the money
Fingers crossed behind my back
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]

??
Jewels Cars and Candy Clothes
Electric garden hose
Down to the minerals
Tickle tickle before stroke
I love your solid golds
I love your pearly ball
You know that I am still
just how you want to feel

Ewww uh oh
Dropped your mind
Scooped it up
Put it in my sock
I'll be your robot girl
Come into me my world
I will wait

Ewww weee boy

I'm your predator hey
Cause Munny I want you back
La la la la

Can't turn me away
I believe in your heart
I'll always want to stay [4x]
