I gave
a kite away.
My favorite.
Giant green octopus
12 legs
soaring in the sky
250 ft.
After looking one last time
the spool was offered up to an anonymous poetry lover
easily recognized by her marvel at the airborne poem.
The best stanza
as I walked
Never looking back.

Monday, April 18, 2011


A kite is a poem.
With the right wind.
A delicate sonnet
on the clouds
with perfect technique.
Or a Haiku
in the Northeast Wind.

"Poetry" (Inspired By Neruda)

One night she came for me.
No scrolls packed or ready-just science books and leftover math tablets-all at once.
Her arms flailing and wide open as she screamed my name.
Pledging me to forsake all others and have her-only her way.
This is a journey she said.
A path chosen.
Who chose it, I said.
You, she said.
By birth- by nature.
What if i'm not ready, I said.
Readiness, is no factor she said.
Only your life and heart.
What is more important I asked.
My life or my heart.
All of it she said.
Franticly I exclaimed, what am I to do?
Breathe she said.

Finding the Needle "The real cool thing about Twitter"

Finding the Needle “The really cool thing about Twitter”

The other day I was talking to a friend who like many people is actually signed up on Twitter but still really doesn’t know what it does or how to Twork it.
(Sorry had to do that).
Instantly I found myself trying to give him a better understanding of Twitter’s power and in my mind, it’s revolutionary capabilities. To get to the chase, he said “man I’m not even sure what to do with it or how it really works.”
That’s when it came to me and I said without thinking.
“Man the thing about Twitter is, it gives you the power to find that
Needle in the Haystack.” I then went on to talk about something I knew he would understand.
Being the Prince fan (that I knew he was), I conjured up one of his old and obscure songs—me being a Prince head myself, I knew a great song.
I said “man with Twitter you can find the Prince Symbol album “Morning Papers” lyric lovers” out there and speak to them all at one time.

Now for you people who might not be Prince fans lets put it like this.
Think of your favorite band, any band. Now think of your favorite non-mainstream song of that band. The one that spoke the most to you- that you played over and over again but never really understood why they didn’t play that one on the radio. Then think of the lyrics to this particular song and how great they were to you- even though your best friend john never really understood why you liked this song so much. Even though you played it over and over again- trying to make it grow on him. Now think about how cool it would be to communicate with say 5000 people – who loved that same song as much as you did.
That’s the power of Twitter. The ability to find the needle in the haystack and communicate with them in a forum you yourself, can moderate- or not.
Sure, there are other benefits of Twitter like some of the ones mentioned by Mullen’s Edward Boches in his article “What Can Twitter Do For You?”
Boches is right about instant access to thought leaders, experiencing crowd sourcing, connecting with Millennials and even the ability to experience becoming an authority. He’s right about all of that. But the simple point that I think people are missing is that on top of all that -- no one has to be a weirdo anymore, if they don’t want to. That is, I can go out there and find another guy or girl who loved Ross King’s book “MICHELANGELO and the POPE’S CEILING as much as me. In fact, I might even be able to find 500 such people if I know exactly which part of the haystack to probe and that my friends, is some cool stuff.

The one other point that I think Boches touches on when he speaks of becoming an authority is the ability to grow a personal brand based on this exact Haystack phenomenon. That means when you find those other needles who share your affinities you have an organic and innate audience of which to share your opinions and spread your loves. In these days that’s not to be underestimated.

So next time you hear someone speaking of Twitter as an annoying little web fad where all people talk about is what they just ate for dinner or the geraniums they saw on their walk to lunch, stop them and talk about how some guy on the web said it was a revolution in motion and how unlike some other social media outlets you didn’t have to be someone’s friend to have direct contact or get information. Tell them about how you’ve heard people are using this thing as one of the most powerful tools and robust communication platforms since the cell phone itself.
Tell them how one man, (Ashton Kutcher) has the ability to say anything he wants, to over 1-million people at once. Tell them how a passionate ACD (Copywriter) from a cool agency in Austin was able to tell millions of people what the really cool thing about Twitter is. And see how they look at you. While you do that I’m going to see if I can find a few more people who are as enthusiastic about MIYAMOTO MUSASHI as I am.

The Hood Menagerie I


Bubble Booties Blow shorts
on the front porch.
funka’ da junk
funka’ da skunk
Hot comb and emollient fingers creep through the rows at the roots
kneading and nurturing at once.

A pair of Jordans with a hole in em’
hang over Harry and nem’ house.
Bones hit the table in the garage
“tennis shoooooos marker”
the white one with the 71 Mustang in the front
that aint’ ran since 73.
Now, stray cats call it home
yawning and meowing all day long.
“Boats sucka”
“All money aint’ good money”
“All money aint’ good money”
“You gone see”

Albert the deaf homeless man
Walks and talks to himself in sign and un-harnessed voice.

Leroy, Brian, and Ray start early.
Kids and grown folk get to work and school
they just get their fortified allotment of 40 cold ounces
pulling their shift on the front stoop
7 days a week.

Sirens whirl- whiz- whine
through the night.
John and Jane copulate on the park bench
as if in bed.
By passers weez at the spectacle
then just walk the block watching
their rubber necks wrapping around
their twisted torsos.
