Willing to lay with me but not listen… To take my seed but not what makes the best of me. Wanting to visually feed off of what lies beneath my robe yet reject the life giving meal of my pensive and well exercised mind. What u think I’m worth outside of the Petty act u call me to means nothing to me. But Ur worth… Think!… The hitting of That like button u give so much power to over the making of ur mood or ur day. The taking of Endless and meaningless Selfies in seductive poses directed at no one in particular???… Ur fishing… But for what kind of fish?… Ur bait might tease under the water something primal and greedily ravenous which u cannot see and are far from prepared for… A ravenous shark with teeth meant to tear and not to kiss… To rip and not to speak those ego placating smooth words u live to hear about urself.. So, pretty but lonely woman who lives for the attention of people she really knows or cares nothing about. Reel in ur line…lay the pole down in ur boat and get back to the shore of the real world… There’s all kinds of good and much safer food there to eat.

I am a walking contradiction of traditions some say. An African American and Native American Muslim poet with a personal life history as violently turbulent as a Storm. A visionary from the bottom of life’s social barrel striving to share the hope found in the light of faith through sometimes dark but real poetry. I’m a former member of the Bloods street gang, former serial bank robber, and both federal/state prison convict. I live on my mother’s tribal reservation of the Leech Lake band of Ojibwe in Minnesota.
