i was all do you know how cold it is out there?
she was like i thought you were xbi
i said baby i aint been xbi in so long
she lifted her eyelashes and said
thats not what my sister said.
startled birds flap
into the sky
leaving behind one stray feather
this little little kid.
barely big enough to walk sees it
and heads over.
kids mom is all no no princess
i was thinking isnt this the same kid
i just watched put her whole filthy foot,
shoe and all, into its mouth
on several occasions?
but i guess that feather fell off for a reason.
just like i guess we fell off for a reason
the grand canyon
a new car with a red bow
two women. one wearing a tshirt saying tony.
the other wearing one saying pierce me.
right up there is the vision of the kogi truck across the street
from your workplace on a sunny day right around lunchtime.
the place across the street from me has lunch trucks there almost every day
and only as i devoured my three korean/mexican tacos did i learn
that we from the wrong side of the street are not welcome there.
but let me tell you america (and canada)
and all the ships at sea:
if i see a kogi truck on a sunny day across the street from me
right before lunchtime
youre gonna have a hard time keeping me from ordering three tacos.
saw that Magic Johnson special on ESPN
nearly made me cry
made me choke up a bit.
i highly recommend it if you havent seen it.
doesnt even matter if you dont care about sports or basketball
magic transcended all of that. he was a star in a city that has all the best stars.
im still amazed that while Eazy-E and all those others died of AIDS,
the Lord wanted Magic to stick around and show us that anything is possible
even beating something that we once thought was unbeatable.
God bless life. God bless science. God bless hope.
