today mar9th i got class down at Teacher's College, it should be good. I have Feminist Perspectives in Literature and I definitely need to learn a thing or infinity cuz I'm willing to admit my ignorance. I'm working on it I swear I am.
went to andover same school as president bush and his pops, and i got better grades. graduated in 98 came back to the city, went to Columbia University. went to class spit poetry got my mind free saw a bunch of shit graduated in 02 with a degree in english/latino studies. got suckered into more education and here i am now. i be complaining a lot, but truly i feel blessed to be where i'm at.
poetry. that's the main reason why yall here. biggest thing to happen to me was discovering the nuyorican poet's cafe at 17 for the grand slam 1997. sarah jones, saul williams, roger bonair agaard, jamaal st john, flaco. needless to say i was blown away. at the same time, i was reading the nuyorican canon of piri, mikey, the rev, sandy, willie, tato, and just finding out about albizu, betances, fidel, che and other beautiful people. such an innocent time. it was all a dream.
i could go through the whole story but the journalists would never holla at me. i'm sure we'll get back to how it happened.

Clason Point Haikus
Girls play Double Dutch
Dancing over spilled blunt guts
Moms screams once it’s dark
Sitting on the benches
Sunlight seeps thru midnight trees
Deez quickly move in
You can run fast now
No Social Security
Once outside the bars
Old timer plays chess
I’ll bust your ass take your bitch
Leave you without queen
Dreams are stars in cloudy
New York sky Once in a blue
Moon you’ll see one fly
Do not bite hangnails
Or toenails keep new clippings
Like butts in ashtray
Leaves hang low wind blows
Broken glass lays quiet Steam
Rises from beer grave
Alley kittens crawl
In trash can Mother has fish
Bone hanging from lips
