The Sprout

I’ve been connecting and disconnecting, To prove I am alive. I am the seed. Art isn’t the same. Turbulence. Sweetness. Cacophony of color meeting white canvas. At times I am blank. At times I am the mess I try to avoid. My limbs are extended. Fingertips brushing through tangled locs. No need for combs when you only see yourself. People blur together in Picasso fashion.

The Gavel

The Gavel   It’s all in the image So that means It’s all about how you present it and in a world of misfits I can’t seem to get this generation To listen   For me,   I was never quite told what I wanted to hear Because I fell in love with a world that is more comforted In projecting the surreal   As I breach this world’s forbidden sector may the judger’s implications forever vector   leaving me faced with yet another dilemma, because the hip bone is connected to the back bone and our backbone is now … Continue reading The Gavel
