Hey folks, my blog is about growing up black, being the rare native Brooklynite (a unicorn!), and the changing landscape of NY life. If you have an essay that fits the blog's theme, I'm open to "hosting" other writers/bloggers. Currently my audience is at about 1000.

For those who are interested in new authentic music. Attached below is a link to the debut music video Planet X by Jay Stones. It creates a great journey through sound and harmony. So check it out and share your thoughts on it! peace

Every time I
See you naked I
I offer my deathbed but
You won't take it.
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.
   In my prime I
   I tried to burn away my
   Winter weeds but I
   I breed and then I decay
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.
   Strange.  Some ghostly deed
   Consumed my fangs
   And all my lilies turn to seed
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.
Strange:  My flower bed cannot hold you.

This poem was inspired by my friend who has had two important people in her life who have passed away:

"Turn, Turn, Turn"

Death visits us all
But for some it comes
Sooner, lurking at corners
For the moment to jump into
The continuous turn
Of the revolving door
Pushed forward by its
Invisible force, we are unable
To push back, only to
Look through the clear glass
At years now behind.

Death –
A catalytic constant
Whirling around
In a swirling cup of time
Tearing apart compounded
Memories and the only
Reaction is to find a way to
Let go after being consumed
With grief and altered into
Another phase where life
That once mattered is
Physically gone.

This is a draft of a poem I am writing:



In my room

Stands two mirrors

On a brown

Wooden dresser

I see myself in one and

At times in the other

But never together

At a distance,

They look like eyes

Staring back with

Cartooned ovals


In slanted angles

A room enclosing itself

In its pupils, an open

Window and the fading screen

Of my TV, sometimes I wonder

If they have secrets for me,

Like wanting me to step into

Them and see another world.
