exactly what i like <3
Your ex-husband, the rapper Nas, put your wedding dress on his album cover. Why did he still have the dress?
It’s not even the dress. The joke behind that is that it’s the slip to the petticoat to my dress. I think when I moved out I just left it. That’s all he had, poor thing.
Did you know that was coming?
He gave me a heads-up like two days before it was released.
Do you know why?
All kinds of ideas of why, but I don’t really care.
But it brought up a bunch of stuff you were probably hoping was in the past.
Maybe for others, but not for me. I don’t really listen to his music anyway.
she cold as hell
kelis is everything
They gon get back together I just know it

"here a camera becomes an instrument of a sharply knowing lyrical poetry that draws its energy from a late-twentieth-century urban scene; and here, as consequence, a poignant vitality and unassuming humanity are rescued from the flow of life’s events."
— robert coles
as a poet. words are my characters. just as in a novel. you may met a character over and over again. and as you read. they are fleshed and drawn. this is how my poetry regards words and themes. you will meet them over and over again. because they are telling you a story. and they will continue to circle high and through. until the story ends. i write the way my being goes. so all the stories it needs and wants to tell. for however long and wide they need to travel. i let them. i let my poetry choose. it is who it is. it is not something i create. it is something that creates itself. within me.
