as long as i can hit my notes:

file this under "people who say the only rap they like is mine could like this too" or "(possibly) better version of apt" (even though the video is pretty cheesy):

changed my mind.
i've got plenty of material on my own, probably.


wonder if i'll leave this up. (i didn't)

sometimes when i read something great
or see a great drawing
or hear a great song
i pause and think about all the wasted time.
and then i waste some more.

i'll lap them tomorrow.
with ink stained fingers
and dark ringed eyes.
and they'll wonder
where i came from.

i miss when i used to write all the time.
i'm not sure when it happened.
or how.
but i seem to be
afraid of the phrase.

i'm not even sure what i have to say,

there's got to be something.
otherwise this is all just a cruel joke.

but God is a great comedian.

and i've never been too good
to be a punchline.

i guess there's naught to do
but let the black marks run.
and do myself in.

let's write.

and so begins the (semi)itinerant life.
let us consider it our hero's journey through the underworld.
from which he shall emerge a reborn myth-hero savior.
of himself.

"i am a simple man / i don't ask for much / but an angel's touch" (or, some examples why i love saul williams [from just part of one of his albums]):

"the minute or the moment / how you think is your opponent / if you're listening right now, close your eyes and count to / one"

look to the sun

"patience / over / anxiety / it's hard to remember the / love that / sprang from / simplicity"


"give it up, the tragedies of your mind / all your fears and doubts are mounting up / there's no room for you to breathe there"

give it up

"if only for tonight, sweetheart, be God."
