Tears Dry Own Their Own

A Remix from the best thing that ever happened to hip hop, musically speaking. The DF.

Also from the best thing that ever happened to hip-hop,
personally speaking, The TX, I give you the words of Easy Lee…

7.23.11 (Amy’s Dead) … a short poem

a dead slave is not a slave at all

more so a bird flying south for the winter

fleeing the cold of a life abbreviated

her peace, never found

is spelled out now

in all caps

AMY WINEHOUSE FOUND DEAD IN LONDON

and for some strange reason

i flinch

perhaps because i arm wrestle demons daily

and have come to the conclusion that THEY

hate artists with a passion that rivals

the love of all mankind

beyond a reasonable doubt

art is Holy …

i lay here

wrapped in revelation

convinced

art is of God

heaven and immortality …

her songs

the blues my grandchildren will sing

this night

i spend like every other …

awake

preparing for the demon that was assigned my soul

“1,000 Deaths” in my headphones

    the remix and the poem are both exquisite

    art is HOLY

    and so is respect for every human life, struggle, experience
