how i've been living recently

cono

que lo k mi gente. been a minute, but eff what ya heard the repossession movement is in full effect mode familia. life is good. i've been meditating on the possibilities of evitability. shit's real. the entropy in our days pushes us into places we never imagine, worlds unseen. me? living in harlem relocated from the bx, but my heart never left. had to organize the life and mental. everyday struggle biggie said.

Seems like since i first started performing, technology caught fire. me? just trying to catch up. couldn't possibly twitter my existence every five seconds. doing too much grown man shit to put on blast.

shout outs to tara betts, rich villar and the acentos crew doing amazing things. Poetry is in the Bronx. Recognize.

The Knicks still suck. I feel like the best decade of my life been destroyed by the evil genius. The curse can be lifted by Lebron. Vamos Rey!

The Yankees want broke Bronxites to shell out money they don't have for a team that hasn't won a championship in this decade. Some nerve.

Me, I've saved more than I ever have, not going to weak slams, horrible sporting events, buying overpriced clothes. I'm still broker than yesterday though. Two lintballs worth of sentiments that might get me cheez doodles, and that book of old poems might buy my sanity.

no particular order an ongoing list
