The difference between u and I?…I take the truth and put it on my toothbrush. I scrub the cavity causing guck out of my word making choppers with it. I use it as soap and scrub my entire soiled-by-the-world body with it… even the parts the sun never sees. U?… u put it in ur pockets or purses and save it for the special occasions that’ll make u look good. Crazy how we laugh at eachother’s world views. To me, after hearing u speak, I picture some bland and boring pond with like 2 or 3 goldfish secretly hoping to soon die, even though they look happy. My view of what is, an ocean filled with 50,000 ravenous great white sharks surrounding a little boat of about 3 or 4 people. All of whom are drawing lots on who the poor soul is to be thrown in the dark waters, so the rest can make a break for it… Pack, come on now…always exaggerating… No, u!… come on now, always blindly minimizing! lol… wow!

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.
