At the very start I must warn the reader that we may not share the same understanding of such common words as oracle, god, gods, deities, angels, spirits, niggas, negus, nigggahs, beauty, will, spirit, soul, mind, omniverse, individual, food, hood, understanding, subconscious, honkey, perm, magic, miracle, success, law, grace, race, thinking, beliefs, analysis, synthesis, religion, meditation, animal, emotions, consciousness, human, hasbeen, womb, ghost, vampire, soloist, master, jazz, jaws, entertainer, laugh, cattle, clown, dad, deed, terror, love, marriage, adultery, sainthood, freedom, discipline, needle, polygamy, gun, money, and many, many, many other words, and unless we get on the the same page regarding the meaning of these terms and their related objects, and concepts, this work will not be fully useful to the reader.

And despair    can abandon        us  but   hope  can't    when           Prisoners   don't  own their   own images   so         all the new stars           got      bars      and   bards   to tell it    are  so out of   style    like     motors      and  Sunday

To have the body

What is suffering
What is justice
What is language
What is a story
Whose story are you gonna believe?
Who is in charge

Would we survive outside of history?
Me and you and the Heartbreak, Kid?

So he's a great man?

Someday I'm gonna do this  in America
