Happy Chinese New Year

After years of toil
‘least we know we came out of it
alive. We’re here.

 

Didn’t I…

He wasn’t appreciated much
most artist ain’t.
With his fur collar, pimp stroll—
hair slick back
smooth mouth…know how make yo hips move
put you in a mood,
where you don’t wanna to get out of yo feelings.

 

You’re the Real MVP

I have opened myself to being

vulnerable—and I thank you.

For teaching me to swallow the

good and the bad.

You have taught me too be brave

at everything I do.

 

Bad Mind

Trying to take refuge in a body
waring itself to live
with a mind getting too comfortable with death
your tongue clutching onto survival.

Sitting in empty

thinking how I just

want to be enough

for you,  a place to call

whole.

Disappear

RIP Rashawn Brazell

They come in smiles
and call themselves friends of yours.
Careful, of devils.

Friend, I rather die
than live, knowing I could’ve
helped you but didn’t.
