Ok, don’t be alarmed…yes I write poetry too! I started when I was a freshman at Prairie View A&M University, which is where I attended my first poetry event. After my first performance, I was hooked. PV gave birth to a lot of great poets who are headliners in the Houston area. I don’t consider myself on their level but I hold my own. (smile)
Below is a verse from the spoken word song I did as part of the group Poetic Nation, which compromised of members from Muhammad Mosque No. 45. My stage name is AdJAYcent. The song is titled “Creativity”, and we had to write a verse using the names of all of the other members in it. Their names are in bold.
Let me know what you think and I will be presenting more of these during my upcoming exhibit “The Return of the Renaissance Brother”….and yes that is me in the middle of this old school photo!! Same smile.
Not the internet but rhymes that make intimate,
Intercourse with the Source that breeds my scripts thatz Magnificent.
Magnifyin your capacity of this creative kingly kaleb capacitor,
With circuitry of the MotherBoard of which I am the ambassador.
I cracked open your atoms, Outspoken in my autonomy,
I rewrote Da Vinci’s Code cuz his mathematics was borin me.
Man of the Sun going about planting seeds,
Separatin the tare and the weeds,
They take root in Red Truth and scattered shade from growing jamil poeTREEs.
I expand my Butterfly-like wings,
That graze the face of Saturn’s rings
The Diam-wiser I get..telepathic communication becomes my ringtone theme.
Khalil serenates Platoon to keep it still in its orbit,
The moon was soul-Full that it spit out hemispheric lyrics that cover three-fourth,
PN dictates the score,
Not a movie reel but real thots unstopped,
by poetic death angels hovering over the Lambs flock,
Download our creative powers and your essence is unlocked,
Love is the force by which this Poetic Nation will not stop.
