Imma name my baby such. Fuck  your lazy syllables.  Might o  con dreamed   up       a praise name.   You know you ghetto if       and I love it.    Dictionary claims  it’s  the   way  we became human, the jaded program   windows’   automatic roll up,  the soda on the side type DNA lesson made fun on the block  in the sun   with the double dutch champion    and the four wheels   on wide feet   hunting for fat ass that knows how to leap that rope   a joyful scuffle that   almost sounds like the sea having been broken    but it’s just sugar and carbon  stuffed in aluminum  burning your teeth  numb    and fast twitch  muscles   saying  higher   nigga     it’s Sunday        call on the numberless      threads  of your one mazed identity  and swallow them whole   bent  dial tones   then    call my baby, flying

4.4.68 Full moon in a Kiln / The martyr tries hard drugs

So now we are all in a poppy field     The entire society is all doped up  on hope   and  I'm about to eat your food, homie      leap out from the crease of cicero  the great orator the toreador roars       my phantom tags me and runs    we are watching the mythos play itself out  watching the heroine as she's made        to touch paper in Harlem with an open hand     across the street from the nigga with the bullhorn   Apollo, sun god   Heliopolis   the last place on the rock    our magnetic field   unburdened         these were career protesters trying to wrack up arrests for credentials  greeting each other:      see you in Vietnam,   tomorrow     these we road hoes  with a puppy and a gun    large fur    lark,  slaughter       the purple  kind     dim wine in a backalley  leaning against   the attack  so it  dances   with   me      so now we are all in this poppy /  field  eating from the bottomless vessel  of   wet light  it's  finally ready  to be Dogon AD    could we celebrate   when they hung  him  turned him into wheel grease      Could we at least  pluck a few orange petals and arrange them in our Afros like fangs     

oh, by the way, 

                                 The sunlight is changed by the moon. The moon is a parasite, We are not moon people.    The moon has nothing to do with us.  The moon is not our friend.

The blood of the thing

I told you love was more dangerous  than   hate.     We’ve  been repeating ourselves since  the late  nt    meaning       behind     our captivity  was discovered  :   We’re   so   loveable    so easy   to love    so easy  to idolize       I told you bible worship  was the same as idol worship      while you feathered  your thumb across my cheek  talkin  bout baby   be my   church n stuff      I told you  danger  lives  longer  than  fear     and set   out   to prove    it      ever seen me look afraid?   Ever  seen  me  say   no to myself  in  the listless  hour  of parting?   Sharp coffee in the morning  and then every few hours until sunset. Nap with head on the marble countertop. Whiff of blunt wrap and car alarm wakes him. Another army band on the box   my god! the needles  sound so holy! Roll me a hinged god spinning so.   I told you sin   was no different than devotion.     They got a wire  on Baldwin  even while he vacations in Palm Springs,   they  watch   him  wake up smoke  shit   fuck   write   suck  the sun out of watermelon    all of it      and get paid too      to   watch        the black dot  move  

Told you they’ll spy on the ghosts when they run out of heroes    turn you into both  and make you  surveill yourself     But just as easy as we could snap into position we cld stay maladjusted, crude in the blood, voweless with dove cut wings    ass to the ceiling   eyes watching god      praise the water that gives back no images

Grace notes (one)

Saw god with her ski mask on in the corner of the mirror / I   where the illusion’s maps spun with guiltless delirium

But before I knew the concept of who and what quote unquote god was    I thought my father was god   fuzzy opera  years    and  wads of eternity

Beneath the glory,   the fatigue  / ecstatic        Lactic acid vs. oxygen      Cesium  cures  cancer                                                                                                                                Chromium
                                                                    And crawling on our hands and knees  in grass just after a                thunderstorm

       Preparation for  war    

                   Auto-hypnosis               prophethood vs. priesthood and  you was in the pit with the dealers the hustlers the pimps the prostitutes    you’re going to have to master both      uses  of us    

Concert   dance  and  vernacular    dance,   swamp taboo and feral land animal    the body being everything        and   the wooden  African deity  standing in the corner  near the door           to the spirit  it charges      get rid of your treadmill if you wanna survive   the AI  are racist ‘gainst I and I sayers      but am I done killing off my characters for their unforgivable   ?
              Kayne   is a virus  in  the matrix like contracts  and marriage   and broken bibles  /christmas, show me the page it’s on in there,  show me the mall in jerusalem and ice princess cartoon  crooner screaming   buy  me. sell me      

           he caught  that disease like a good black athlete   but he’s one who        deserves a cure   his mother’s revival    and let her cry :

                     diamonds aren’t even rare , my nigga,  but I am        blackman   get your soul back ‘fore yesterday can

Whoever says sister now except the radicals  ?       Insulin breaks down sugar
                                                                                 Lipase breaks down grease   it’s one or the other  for the lazy  
                                                                               human body produces no enzymes to digest meat , flesh really, the dead flesh of other animals, also a virus in the body    responsible for the other viral   orders strolling down   the cold lanes of   sorcery   into righteous conformity    I  honor   the treason that lets me know these things, only  that     unabashed       honor ific    and

The deity in the corner reaches for my hand,  must have heard me ready to save everybody  from their fake     honor killing        but I’m busy  now   smashing skittles onto the pavement in the place of chalk, tracing grace in disgrace til they cuddle walk        husking the spotlights off escape routes and
                                                                   Watching men become the lies they uphold , sucking the virus from their flesh and spitting it at them   that rotten candy        you like that don’t you?
                   falling to my knees in protest    
                                                                                                                        Reparations. Grace notes
