We ain’t playin’ that

“Godforsakenness” is fiction like Puff the Magic Dragon, and we slayin’ that — Mental games from theodicy frames, and we aint playin’ that — God dudn’t forsake his children; Quote us cuz we sayin’ that — Lord, open our eyes and mesmerize — we prayin’ that. (Dwayne Polk)

Just another nigga

My skin is black, got melanin of cocoa, Preservin’ my consciousness in the Land of the Loco; Smarter than the average, but my life doesn’t matter, Scared cop, mistaken identity, and my blood will still splatter – Cuz of a fear of a black planet and a hoodie that I rock, Just another nigga dead, yeah, there […]

My main squeeze

I can’t lie, the Holy Spirit is my Main Squeeze, I run after Her, like I’m late when the train leaves, Breath colder than an Arctic breeze, I got a brain freeze Spirit has no gender, when I say “Her” just don’t complain, please. (Please…) Comfort, unbelievable. Passion, inconceivable, She gives Herself and I’m the […]

To my right and to my left

I’m walkin’ in the parking lot and I got my hood up. Feelin’ like a lottery winner, got that good luck; Smiling as I stroll, a King in the Pride Lands, But then I catch some side-eye contact in a wide glance. The lady looked at me, then she locked all her doors; Nervous smile, […]

Off the Richter

It’s a party bumpin’, Chris Brown, no invitations, Lyrics thumpin’ to the chest, Give your heart some palpitations, Flowin’ like libations, Growin’ in my patience, Knowing’ indications of Divine Self-Revelations. Whew! Feelin’ like the days of Noah, But I got the Tiger’s Eye like I’m Rocky Balboa. Boa. Constrictor. Holy Covictor. Shakin’ the world with […]

Christ El Dorado

Got more love in my heart than Lucy had for Ricardo, My heart goes astray, He stops me cold like an embargo, I am the Masked Monk, theological desperado, Searchin’ till I found the Hidden Treasure, El Dorado. Never gold, I’m ever bold, his story’s been told, Never sold, staying cold, for the young and […]

Jacob’s Ladder

Black. Lives. Matter. Take the hopes and dreams of the System, make ‘em shatter, Lettin’ loose on the beat like I got a weak bladder; Stay in with the people, while I’m climbing Jacob’s Ladder. Going up yet down like an Escher picture, Drinkin’ Living water, no extra mixture; Black. Male. Endangered Species. Original glory, […]

On the waters of the Void

The Real You Suffering love – I know that is my life motto, Losing everything, but still I win like a lotto, Tears flow from my eyes, making streams in hidden grottoes, But still I stick to the beat heavy, staccato. On the waters of the Void in a perfect storm But shining bright, like Freeza […]

Veni, vidi, vici

God over money, baby, and it’s God over everything; I’m ready for life commitment, like I got a wedding ring. I’m severing the game from the truth, Biggie in 94, I explore and Veni Vidi Vici like a conquistador. I am emptiness before Him, a walking zero, Waiting for Superman, stalking a hero; I mean […]

Monk without a monastery

I am a monk without a monastery Kill myself daily, everlasting hari-kari Married to Creator and I’m livin’ for nothin’ but Love Walking the earth, still I live in the Heavens Above Had to cut all the ties to the Limited— Running the race of grace hard, and I’m winnin’ it— Seeing the Logos Code […]
