TRANSCRIPT

Loose screw
mixed mind up
glue fake hair to fake mindset

with grand visions out jive eyeballs of blue
much more than who you know yourself to be

mixed mind up
glue fake hair to fake mindset
with grand visions out jive eyeballs of blue
much more than who you know yourself to be
a floozy?

Ex-queen…
accustomed to sweet salt chinney chin wiped off dean…
bombarded with negative images…
white washed themes
lost
in her own queendom.

Blue floozy of a brother too
lost his throne
his behavior says he’s worthless
matter clogged with bones of brothers dead before him
racing towards the unknown sun
searching…
going bump in the night
every time the beat thumps
jumping like the punk he is
disposition trite
unable to read
her temple walls.

Blue

He wish he could read

Blue…
We lie so much that we wish we were true.
But who are we?

Floozy in a book!
Floozy children running amuck
wild ignorant to a home cooked meal.
Where is home?
Floozy need a loan for pampers and weed.
Floozy don’t read
don’t right their wrongs
don’t sing the songs their mother’s long to record.
Bored with life
Challenge floozy kids!
Question why they did what they did and then hid in a freezer.
Scribble out their little faces, ice their fevers
burning in America’s incinerator later in her jails
they are counting the beds,
banking on the fact that we hate ourselves.
Misunderstand our blackness
Empty and cold
Weep for the Floozy in you!

Blue. Blue. Faces, places
things now, aces, spaces, deuces wild
Floozy Jokers
Floozy Fools
Floozies know the game but don’t know the rules!
We’re living one life
I teach you choose
How deep is your blue?
Blue
Blues
