The new books of the old testament
The genuisness exited
Leave it cuz
Numbers don't add
Due to no money
Joshing you

Always liked verbs
Eccles cakes are tasted
The solo man sings
I say aaaaah

Cowboys and a smile

Cowboys wear their hearts on their sleeve
They sing in honky tonks and dive bars,
Drink their memories down, they spend their weekends in a bar where they can be themselves, wating to have their spirits glisten.

Inside an inn, they spoke of was and when.
Even then their present was defined by their history,
As they prepared to march off to war again.

My first memory of women’s football is Brandy Chastain 
	Taking her sports shirt off after she scored on the pitch

My own Worst Enemy
Sometimes the thoughts I’m processing
Have me stressing
Like why do I do this
There’s no point in this writing
I should just stick to fighting 
And go back to acting so clueless
I should just take a breath 
And start beating my chest
Until it...Read More

Ebony love songs, ebony fears
fashioned to survive the years,
soulful music laced with tears

Darkness falls in the heart of man
and silver wisps of sultry dream

Wolves prowl the streets of 
the Quarter and bay
golden notes into the night.

Those down-and-out play
their notes again while the 
Boogie Men swing just right
