Calisthenics (Week 14)

Collection of things that go together

He was...

the drumstick to my snare drum
the scaffold to my under-constructed building
the comb to my nappy roots
the shower to my cap
the flower to my pot
the paint to my brush
the mouth to my wash
the smell to my new car
the lift to my face
the moth to my flame
the salt to my watermelon
the crunchy peanut butter to my grape jelly
the cheese to my wine
the bread to my butter.

Junkyard Quote (Week 14)

"You're either a leader, follower, or a shadow." - Atarah

"mis-education is mis-education no matter if it's coming through a radio station, coming out of a book, or a teacher" - lupe fiasco ( heard this from a video I was watching on worldstarhiphop about if rappers are role models)

"So, marijuana is a gateway drug because I went from watching Weeds to watching Breaking Bad." - Atarah ( If none of you have seen neither one these shows then you should. Weeds is about weed and a family struggling to pick up the pieces of a dead father and husband. Breaking Bad is about meth and this chemistry teacher's strange twist in his life.)

""He already ruined your mascara. Don't let him ruin your night." - Carolyn Hanley, best friend from kindergarten 

Free Write (Week 14)

New York

I cried when my father died
he was born in New York
the best state ever established
all those busy streets full of
sex, drugs, and hunger!
I've always been jealous of him,
the farthest I've ever been
was to Jonesboro
and that's always a bore
and I snore pretty loudly in the
car when driving back with mom
drifting in and out of sleep
dreaming about how life would have
been if I was in the Breakfast Club.
There is an actual Breakfast Club
that requires members to pay monthly
$200 for 365 days worth of Berry Berry Kicks.
Dreaming of the Coldest Winter Ever,
I envy the snow my father played in,
the snow that fills the streets
then turns a dirty blackish color
it always confused me why white turns black.
I miss my father even though
I never knew him.
