Thanks to Break’Art Mix and Alex Deforce and everyone who came out to the exhibition/reading last night, the new poetry/art book is now available and a video of the show will be out soon. Here’s an excerpt from the text,
Exhausted Poet and Painter gold out postrapping,
Autobiography of an Endangered specie
Forced to mutate in order to
survive in and thrive in the feces
Canvasses and notepads,
Always masking appearing to be stacking
Degrees and debt
Lady liberty on welfare
blowing Hash taking selfies
with her pregnant homies in the projects
Posting updates like,
“Other me this, Other me that
post folk post country post blues post rap
post attacks… John Henry,
when I Pull the hammer back
enter the mirage my visage stay
code switching… Facts.
Know thyself, know thy enemy… “
