WORDS #6

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger than reason. I am so thirsty for the marvellous that only the marvellous has power over me. Anything I cannot transform into something marvellous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

A Small Needful Fact

Is that Eric Garner worked

for some time for the Parks and Rec.

Horticultural Department, which means,

perhaps, that with his very large hands,

perhaps, in all likelihood,

he put gently into the earth

some plants which, most likely,

some of them, in all likelihood,

continue to grow, continue

to do what such plants do, like house

and feed small and necessary creatures,

like being pleasant to touch and smell,

like converting sunlight

into food, like making it easier

for us to breathe.

MUSIC

NEW MUSIC: KOJEY RADICAL

Bambu is the most recent release from London’s Kojey Radical, the innovative young man who floats effortlessly from writing poetic raps, to modelling, to creative directing/styling for fashion labels, and finally runs his own artistic platform, PUSHCRAYONS.

For someone who truly does it all, he is unflinchingly self-aware. While his words never fail to offer disarming insight into his mind and experience, they also act as a mirror, forcing us to look at ourselves and the world around us.

Listen. Think. Enjoy.

Kojey is on SoundCloud, Twitter, & Instagram
