Just How It Goes

Just How It Goes ~~~~~ I’m an old white guy, I shouldn’t rap. If I even try, They’ll call it crap. But I am troubled, In every way. My stress is doubled, On every day. Terror and fright On the news, Each and every night, But not my views. Toil and strife, It creeps inside […]

WWWWW+H

WWWWW+H ~~~~~ Who are you, when you’re not truly you? Who do people see, when they’re with you? Who would you be, if you could be anyone? Who is it, others have chosen you must be? What will happen, if you don’t like yourself? What role do you play, do you play the most? What […]

Blue Screen Cafes

As All

As All ~~~~~ Captured the cosmos twinkling in a tyke’s eye, today. From somewhere foreign, immersing us in infinity. Religious, political refugees swallowing us in silence, different, skin, class, orientation defined. Strange, strained, altogether alien, fascinating but frightening. So similar, still, Dissimilar, diverse, exceptionally enigmatic, leaving us lost, besieged, bothered tourists in transit. Realize we […]
