epileptic By like products foaming spoken word with a poetic convulsing beat.

The indelible, inspirational 
lAid out hidden written inkling
wiThin a poem.

one musT read with acrostic eyeballs popping out your eye sockets.
and enteR into the darkroom of the skull which once held the
masterY tattoeterizing mind of Edgar Allan Poe - the developer who mused me into 
 Tattoetry - The Poetical Tattoo.

Maximus Parthas The Word Wizard

Man you a wizard warlocking written to spellbinding spoken word.
Jargoning prolific prophetic like the bible real truth.
I'm xeroxing you so x-ray this diagonally
Awe inspired me like Edgar Allan Poetically
Your magic wand sleight of hand transform to a mic.
Hand quicker than the eye trick.
You the spoken word godfather -  whose
Hawking pen spit out
A magical abracadabra mouthpiece
Poetic secretions flowing from heaven
From page to the stage
A hocus pocus Houdini spoken word escape
Unlocked the handcuffs of the page
True illusionist of poetic illusions brought me to this conclusion.

A Puzzling Poetic Tattoo Thanking You Nyla Alisia Ward

Nurturing poets to produce.
My motivational, poetical writing, spoken wordress muse.
In leading me to the speak easy cafe site.
To cause me initiating rites to write.
I am tattooing you.
These lines of poetry view.
Her medicine- just write- she administers like a poetic prescription
A writers treatment for bloc- no pre, nor post, just non existing that's her description
For tempting and hooking me back to my addiction.
Surprise! tattooeterized your name in this rendition.
U indelible watch within the ink.
A grateful gratitude laid you in this piece.
Cocked a pen - sprayed you like i shot a glock.
Your names bleeding- piercing lines-so i unlock this puzzling poetic tattoo thanking you.

Martin Luther King Jr

March like a southern university battle of the bands bayou classic styling drum-
mAjor for peace - bending over backwards on freedoms field of racial equality.
a dReamer is sleeping - but we as a people have awakened to remember and live
your dream as our reality.
you Taught us how to fight and win with
non vIolence as a movemnt.
oh my a Nobel peace prizeman
struggLed peacefully initiating
lunch coUnter sit ins - encountering violence.
even jail Time,
evil water Hoses, police dogs barking up
the wrong trEe.
this is a reveRend ordained by god!
a clergyman taKing jim crow off the menu.
his people got tIred of
trying to constaNtly stomach injustice.
rosa parks did not Get up and settle for
an indigestive preJudice plate of racist gout causing jim crow
thank god her feet weRe swelling with hurt - she stayed seated and broke
a discriminating plate.

Zealous Zeal For Liza Garza

Lyricist phenomenally prophetically poeticizing
rIghteous writing sung into my spirit
so Zealous zeal again connected the acrostic dots and filled
my rAising praising pen toward her 

she's Gorgeous and gifted 
real tAlented too
she's buRst a boombastic bloombloosoming acrostic poetic blood vessel in my brain
poeticiZing prophetically phenomenally shooting the shout of poetry
the vibrAting vice versus visions, collaspsing, reviving revelation spoke in word tongues 
  flowing singing shouting verses in my veins.

Jesus Christ

Justifying us all
bEcause adam and eve were enticed into a great fall
diSobediece got them uprooted from paradise
oh bUt his blessed birth got us planted back so precise
holy Savior you did preach
clear Concise you did teach
became Human on this earth
perfect Rigteous immaculate birth
the benefIts we are reaping
at the crosS the nails into your flesh were deepening-BUT-
true perfecT completion causes my thankful. joyous weeping!
