A Wrinkle in Time: Singing in the Rain

Numb.
Amadou Diallo [Say it “Amado”. Loved one]
Not one but 41.
Multiply it.
I place all of Heaven with its power
The skies gone gray, pouring from L.A. to Harlem, USA.
Umi’s light dims
The Goddess frowns
The Star on the Tree lost in the haze
of acrimony at 30 Rock.
Anthony Baez
My chest tightens
#Ican’tbreathe
Again
No playing ball allowed.
But he’s just a boy
#IamTrayvon
Taste the rainbow
of blood-splattered skittles
I have a dream
I will color my hoodie
with the tears of my pain.
#YaMeCanse
Protect my daughters
Kiss my brothers
Bendición
Bless me, Ultima
I still dream of Avonte’s little face.
How did we lose you,
when we left you safe at school?
And the fire with all the strength it hath
Ferguson burns
Candlelight vigils lit in vain
This type of warfare isn’t new or a shock…
Just hit rewind, again
1993 mad kids are getting tense
We didn’t start the fire
And the winds with its swiftness on its path
#Don’tshoot
And the bombs
in my head
in my head
Oscar Grant.
Don’t turn ya back.
We come in peace
Where is Daddy?
Who shot ya?
Mercy, mercy, me
Defeat and sorrow
I cannot carry the weight
of the heavy world
All these, I place
with the Universe’s almighty help and grace

Between myself and the powers of darkness

KRS-One to Launch Hip Hop Imprint

I have always admired rapper KRS-One, especially after hearing him say he would find refuge in the public library when he was down and out.

Earlier this month, I read that "Brooklyn-based pop culture and art book publisher Powerhouse Books is teaming up with KRS-One in a joint venture to launch I Am Hip Hop, a new imprint overseen by KRS-One that will publish books on Hip Hop and related subjects."

And here's a little throwback, in case you don't who he is:
