I imagine for a second that I am a rapper pulling verbs out of closets the way society likes to imagine him doing it.

They say he contributes nothing and that his existence is a side dish at best when popular opinion actually sits idle but what they don’t know is that he has been pulling the worst of them from the scrap heap and rephrasing their sad diluted summers of glory filled sin and actually doing something with the time as it becomes his daily persona and a sweet drink worthy mission in life to be remembered for having something more than a plot of spare glass and a consistency with words that rivals the same kind of energy found from weekly bills in the mail.
