Between Friends

Hi!! I like to play a game with friends when are just sitting around drinking and having why we call church which is a basic meeting of the minds. We pretty much get white boy wasted and have deep discussions about politics, life… You know, all the things drunk people probably shouldn’t talk about. It’s a writing game that I call pass the pen. We get a notebook and one person will start by writing a sentence or a statement and we pass the notebook around until we have a finished piece of work! It’s fun when some of the people aren’t writers or poet’s like I am. This one is between a really good spoken word artist/rapper friend of mine named Donovan “Swift” Reid. His part will be in purple. Oh, please let me know if you like this kind of mixed poetry because I have more!

As time passes by and I keep searching Through triumphs and burdens, joy and hurting, through longing and wanting, and waiting until there is no where else to look but inside And collect all the scattered pieces, pieces of a complete puzzle yet to be assembled But yet it is disassembled, broken down to the basic elements this leading us back to everlasting time As infinite as dark matter small flickers of time passes and time yet seen… Between us, is all this just lust? Or something so big you can’t see the whole, only portions, Like dips of a movie with no story line as time stands still and my heart flutters like a butterfly wondering Where the next wind, what direction the current of life is headed and wonder should I fly with or against it, Or just ride the tide upon the shore and see where you land as a man alone on the beach with your emotions in front of you…

Writer and spoken word artist. I love to write poetry and short stories, my first two books are books of poetry. I am also a visual artist, wood and metal sculpting, as well as drawing and painting. I've worked in the food industry over 15 years so eating is my hobby. I hope to bring you a fresh and colorful voice on the arts and culinary worlds.
