lyrics

that walk from 3rd to 6th was stiff, uphill
we kept on til 8th ave. still
brought home live crabs, buckets filled
washed in the tub then boiled bright red
while a ruckus
of neighbors and strangers chill
drinks spill, stogs smoked
i held the thoughts close
transcribed the miles we walked
in secret scribbled notes
folks i didn’t recognize
most salute as he strode by
never wondered why
or what was supplied
what a guy

it’s just dope and wine now.
smoke alone in the corner like put in time out
it’s me blessed in the reeds camouflaged in green leaf
striped to the bone marrow unperceived
til the teeth sink deep
the disruption for the peace be
signified by beats
blood speaks
we weep
wake and walk to where the liquor cheap
little me imagining the devils deep
in the ceiling
or my own skin peeling over fiery lakes
woke up with my leg still shaking
eyes tearing, mind still, mom dealing, free wheeling
bipolar default mode flip
like coin toss
final boss
cheap tiger claws
forever live from abandoned malls
on caved foundations
we laid awake praying
heaven held some approximation of playstations
or some way to sample the songs our lives play in
abuelo cracking shells
the juice spraying
percussive pots and pans - deathknells playing
needles and records scraping
bad spanish on fire escaping
boricua flags swaying
rats in handball courts
the pigs still misbehaving
the quiet,private glimmer of that haven
smoke from my nostrils met the sky
i looked down at the handball courts and almost cried
still not sure why
can still see the verazano inside
the lids of our goodest eyes
