“I Think I am Untitled”

As a writer and human being, I am always seeking the challenge of challenging myself.  A writer’s group I have recently joined (Brooklyn, NY) provides a platform to be challenged and criticized.  It ensures that there is no allowance for a “comfort zone” when creating art that remonstrances status quo and social ills.  The result is below:

I Think I am Untitled

Up the stairs

How many stairs

How many stairs?

Lead to how many flights?

 

Preparation of the legs

Reaching new height

Many stares

Upon many stairs

 

Long strides

Produces extra sounds

Creaks that peak

Around the surroundings

 

Causation of building

Muscle mass

Strong lungs

So….how many stairs?

stairs

Eyes still staring

Seeking out flatlands

To rest joints

At the flex points

 

Views of dust

Slight debris

Welcomed to the nose

Invasion of some sorts

 

In flight

Upon a few more flights

Then I’ll reach

A much needed break

 

Creaks are peaking

Hope increasing

Tongue is panting

Patience is thinning

 

Okay now, okay now

This is it

The flatlands are here!

The extra sound as {{{ THUMP }}}

Black Alternative…….you got the screwface!

Eclectic’s the name

Couldn’t hide

No shame

From the military

To the vintage, baggyness

Focus on the itinerary

Must have look

To express the insides

Again no shame

Full of pride

Because I worked

Pushed, persevered

To know WHO I AM

 

Oranges and blue

Grounded by black

Knowing thyself

Sometimes surrounded by white

Greens in cup

And on my plates

Excited by Portishead

Superblue and Metallica

Mariah’s on the radio

As tranced out to drum & bass

Plenty raves, no pills

Music making me high

Astral travels to unravel

 

Stresses and pressures

Twisted demands

Black, the mistaken curse

Male, the mistaken identity

USA, the mistaken utopia

The outsiders wanting to come

To scared to come in

‘Cause within themselves

They wouldn’t go in

I live as prime example

Jealously enraged

As this man stand strong

Never saying “fuck you!”

No Pictures, No Gimmicks….just a few words!

Greetings World!

The last post by E as Poetlove Water was a while ago.  I’m still here.  As Tweeted (@MrEPLWater)….”The waters have been crashing, love is ebb & flow and the poetry has halted.”  That explains my absence.

Spring 2016 will be bananas!  While the surrounding world wallows in uncertainty, I will be bringing certainty

In Creativity,

Dedication to Earth Day 2015

When is Earth Day?

Landscape varied
Fires ablaze
Winds chimes
As the tears of clouds
Produce memories of thousands of years

Supple breasts for kindling
Deers pant by streams
Of deliciousness of H20
Hippopotamus delight
Rolls and turns

Emergence of caverns
Blind bats, black and brown
Pink and white splotched things
Devious caramel and mocha sand creations
Destruction with each footstep

Forests of tree sing harmonies
Miles of ocean augment rhythms
Grasses passions numerous actions
Dark carbonated soils birth countless seeds
Saluting the smiling moon

A mighty star to encourage all
Life ebb and flows
The juice of life
Penetrated 10,000 feet below surface
Blood serving as griot

It’s Showtime at ‘Earth’s Playhouse’!!!

Manifestations of developments seem easier to conjure in the mind than to actualize.  Ideas are wonderful toys to employ the brain’s synapses and neurons.  When does the individual decide to share a completed thought with the world?  Is it just enough to produce bright ideas?  In the latest blog post, I invite to take the journey of exploration of popular and current ideas of living and possible ways of ideas manifest.

For attuned beings, the happenings in today’s times is not a shock at all.  The meticulously planned intention for social destruction has been a long time in the making.  Interestingly enough, the forces responsible for our destruction have been giving clues since the early 1900’s through media outlet and social/human services.  Hollywood films drop endless amount of clues.  But the idea is presented as “for entertainment only”.  One great example would be the 1977 Academy Award-winning film, “Network”.  There was monologue after monologue after monologue explaining to current and forthcoming generations about the power of media.  Yet, “it was just a great film!”  I promise you that (majority of) people enjoy being willfully ignorant and hate assuming responsibility.  Albeit, the aforementioned example was based on an evil idea/deed.  But, it drives the point of the latest blog post.  The idea was employed and it materialized.

The idea of sex, sexuality and cultural norms is as old as River Nile.  It is approached with this sense of revolutionary insight on creation.  Sex is sex.  The idea of sex is generally expressed between two consenting adults.  Whatever they do, they do.  It is not the outside world’s business.  A person’s sexual desires, contemplation and/or expressions through behavior is solely owned by that individual.  In modern-day American society, there is a rampant and invasive idea that anyone can ask of another’s sexual activities.  The answer must be given freely and truthfully, especially if you are a person of notoriety/celebrity status.  Who thought of that idea?  Supporting E as Poetlove Water’s or Idris Elba’s creative offerings do not grant permission for all access into our daily lives!  In turn, members of modern society should embrace the idea of respect and decency.  The notion of healthy sexual lives is equated to a liberty in expression to the world-at-large.  I disagree with the “world-at-large”.  For anyone that knows me, descriptive words like ‘free-spirited’, ‘mindful’ and ‘responsible in action’ paint an accurate picture.  So, again, the prevalent idea of sex and sexuality in modern society is based on idea of recklessness, false freedom and lacking accountability.

Sex, in the mind and processes of myself, is an intimate exchange of physical, intellectual and/or spiritual energies from one being to another being.  Conversely, I will only focus on hueman beings.  I have the idea to express my sexuality in a cultural and organic manner.  I have been in love with people that I know and do not know on a personal level.  Usually, it is a trait or gift that they possess that I strongly admire.  It ranges from talent to body parts to way of expressing one’s soul.  Subsequently, the love is expressed in a variety of ways.  In all honesty, I rarely share those thoughts and feelings with the individual.  Nonetheless, the love exists. When I do share, it is in the form of a compliment or recognition.  Various females and males have been the object of my love.  Does this mean that I am also sexually attracted?  Not necessarily.  But, I have a deep running admiration for the countless heavily melanin-expressed persons on planet Earth.  I would love to share intimate space with many.  Yet, there is an uncertainty that I have the time and energy to do so. Sure, I have had sex with a small portion of those beings in my mind.  Then, reality forces me to weigh the pros and cons of pursuing in 3rd dimension sexual expression.  My personal preference would be soulful-spiritual sexual intimacy.  Again, this runs as my idea.

While swimming through the sea of wonderful ideas, my brain takes a pause to observe the outside world. Since the inception of social media via the Internet in the mid-to-late 1990’s, Earth citizens have been afforded opportunities to express ideals around personal preference and sexuality.  It ranges from the discreet and spiritual to the wide open (no pun intended) and too Root chakra-ish (lol).  As the years passed, more and more people were able to express the deepest and most intimate ideas of their respective lives. As PC/laptop cameras and camera phones became popular purchases in early 2000’s and beyond, these persons’ ideas became the plot of homemade videos and picture collections.  Then, the sex tape revolution was in full effect.  From celebrities to our next door neighbors, we got voyeuristic insight to learn about their ideas of sex/sexuality expressed before our eyes.  Such viewing can titillate.  Yet, is it necessary? Have lives been enhanced by viewing the recorded escapades?

The new view on personhood is that nothing should be private.  Does that makes sense?  Another example is listening to Power 105.1 ‘The Breakfast Club’ Morning show on occasion.  It has been stated by an unnamed DJ on that show “people really want to know about you. They feel like they have the right to know all that they want to know about you (the artist/entertainer) because they buy your [uninserted expletive]. The images that dominate social media at selfies of butt shots, crotch shots, cleavage shots and nudity shots.  Could this be a scream for freedom?  Over the last 2500 years or so, most of the world have been under the dictates of religion.  The most dominant were/are:  Judaism (and Zionism, the political /economic extension), Islam and Christianity.  All have imbalanced and unrealistic approaches to sexuality.  Most project a sense of purity, restraint and suppression.  Yet, more and more people are coming out of the “religious and psuedo-spiritual closets” to express their ideas around sex and sexuality.  People seem to want to go to a place in living where freedom to be is number 1 priority.  Whether this is being naked, having consensual relations in hetero/bi/homosexual situations or sharing their mentality towards persons of one’s desire, the societal shift is present.  From this point on, how will I express my ideas around sex, sexuality and cultural norms?  How will you?  It is for me to decide and you to observe.

Self-Determination is Real!!!!

Confirmed Affirmations

I am the profile picture
I am the cover photo
I am the fingers who type such words
I am who I need to be
I am who I want to be
I am the soul parallel to the Black Hole
I am the spirit of five galaxies
I am in negotiations for expansion
I am who I say I am

Yo voy a la Republica Dominicana / I go to the Dominican Republic

Journeys are get times to reflect, gather and plan your next station, whether it be spatially or mentally.  Before my flight to Dominican Republic on last Friday, I had not been on a plane in two year!  Time flies (pun, may or may not be intended…depends on your sense of humour)!! 

The week leading up to the departure was working in extremes.  There were various powerful and creative experiences.  On the other hand, there were many challenges.  The positives:  I had a moment to spend physical time with members of my spiritual and creative families.  I deeply processed the beauty and joy in starting my own family.  Solid thoughts and plans of business had seem to arise out of nowhere/somewhere very hidden.  The negatives:  Every possible thing connected to technology and currency were going terribly wrong.  Unable to connect with certain folks before departure wasn’t too cheery.  Potentially harmful breakdowns in communication proved somewhat disturbing.  Yet, I persevered.

So, I am at the airport waiting to board.  I sense of elation and peace had come over me.  I was happy to travel and begin the next phase of life.  Someone close to me said that they know my mother would be proud of me!  I took a pause to process/reflect.  I’m sure she is, at least, somewhat responsible for the provisions made.  This is why Ancestral acknowledgement is crucial.  They have more direct access to things of life than we do.  Their point-of-view is way more vast than this earthly plane.  As I digress, the flight was beautiful.  Anyone that knows me should know that i am an impatient traveler.  Ah jus wunna reach now fuh now!  The flight departed on time and arrived 35 minutes early.  Turbulence was bare minimum.  The landing…….ears popping and going through customs.  The process was pretty efficient.  

This is my first visit to DR.  It is what I expected on a surface level…everyday people, natural landscape, semi-humble living and lots of food that I can’t eat.  In my opinion, there is way too much fried food!  EVERYTHING is fried!  But, I am on a mission to help the people eat more sensibly and appreciate what they have.  It is a nice to eat fruit that may have been picked an hour prior to purchase.  During an invitation to the home of a friend of a co-worker, I had the Dominican culinary experience.  Berenjera, mangu, arroz con frijoles, arroz vegetales and pitahaya!  PITAHAYA will quickly rise to the top of ‘Favorite Fruit Charts’.  It is beautiful to look, beautiful to peel and beautiful to eat.  It is full of seeds and light to eat.  After a little research, it is in the cactus fruit family, works well with human digestion and assists in the purification of blood.  Nice, right!
