i must say
the hills in San Francisco
are ridiculous

it looks like
a concrete rollercoaster
hills and hills

i swore i was
walking up a mountain
the other

just had houses on it
of course going down
is no problem at all

i stood on top of Fillmore St.
and looked down
on top of Union and Leavenworth

and looked down
The Bronx has alot of hills
but not steep drops like SF

the crack heads may fall down
the hills and try to sue the city
Tremont, 176th, from Jerome to University

but the ones out here
are continuous
one hill after another

ok new topic
everyone must read Jeff Chang's
"Can't Stop Won't Stop"

best book on the hip hop generation
point blank
and you know hip hop and me dont get along anymore

i've been reading it everyday for
the last four days
can't put it down

trust me read it
love it live it
memorize it

the thing i love the most about being in California
is how i wake up earlier than i normally would
so i'm up at 7 am, bright and early
cause in NYC it s actually 10am
shit this is great

i feel like im getting a jump on the world
and i will always hyave more timen to do
things in SF than i would in NYC
i get 3 more hours, i know i dojn't
but dont spoil my dream
i'm an early bird in Califas

but sometimes that just means
im up doing shit until everyone wakes up
reality always ruins perfection
(who will agree with me)

********************************************************

these voices
are not new
they've been
in my head
for centuries
now

talking me
to sleep
bury the ash
under the soil
barely soft
from concrete lovers

the throw of the dice
will always come out odd
1. 3. 5. 7.9.11.

my favorites numbers are
always odd and perfect
and they shine lke
crazy diamonds

landed in Califas
it's been a long 2 weeks
i'll recap you from the beginning of
The Bonafide/John Pablo World Tour

John is getting bigger and bigger
he got his first haircut
was a brat during dinner time
knows what to do with a guitar pick (STRUM)
i miss him alot as i right this

i was in another semi-final slam
but this year i tanked
BUT TANKED WELL
read poems that i would never read in slam
fuck that, i knew i was done after
the first round
congratulations to Carlos, Roger and RAC
they killed it

i read Holler! (an edited version)
and it felt great reading it at least parts
got a 7 point time penalty (Holler!, no pun intended)
sometimes if the fire isn't there
there's no need to keep trying to stay warm

in Califas right now
it's 9 pm, NYC is 12 am
the house zone change is always weird to me
cause my body is about to shut down
until next time
