I had plenty of onions and peppers plus fatback for the greens and peas. I’m going straight up soul food today. Then I’m getting busy with my course stuff.

A Saturday Groove While I Work

I’ll be updating this songlist, but take a peek while I do some errands. I’ve got tracks 4-10 on repeat, especially 647.  I’ve got some new erotic poetry to post.  Soon.

story of between

hearts gathering waves
of past markers like photos
we walking parallel
towards the here and now
of between
as we walked
among soldiers of freedom
lifting our voices
from silent tears
to forever paths
heartbeats
from meeting each other
and this is how
you knew me
i knew you
long before meeting
where the between
of here and now
recognizes
repetition in our histories
of motion
of emotion
where the between
syncs and links
manifesting that moment
where we meet
in the here and now.

to you as well thanks as well to you thanks well to as you thanks

pleasure all mine
pleasure all yours
all my pleasure
all your pleasure
my all pleasure
your all pleasure
pleasure my all
pleasure your all
mine all pleasure
your all pleasure
mine pleasure all
your pleasure all
my pleasure all
your pleasure all
pleasure all my
pleasure all your
pleasure
mine
my
your
all

Conjure Real

what is the difference
or separation
between meaning in
conjure and language?

where does the relationship
to each other manifest?

can the carnality of
a desire be conjured
through language?

what is missing?
what word
completes
calls forth
beingness?
