April 1st poem

Check it. My disclaimer for this. I have a different sleep pattern than everyone else so my day really ends at 5am. I don't care. While you guys are writing during the day at work or home or any other place, I am sleeping. So here is day one. It is in spanish. I wont translate it because it will lose the meaning that the refrain means. So here it is.

Como el Burro a la Carreta

¿Si asi me amas ?
Digo como el burro ama a la carreta
Digo Si el burro no amas a la carreta
¿Asi me quieres?

Digo con el mismo anhelo del odio
Que el burro le tiene a la carreta
¿Asi me amas tu?

¿Pero que sera si el burro
no encuentra oficio sin la carreta?
Si el unico uso de tal burro es
Cagar y jalar su carreta.
Si se lo quita ¿con que se quedara?

Si el asno y el caballo abandonan al pobre burro
Y tu tambien me abandona a tal burro
Y a mi tambien me abandona como el burro que soy
¿A quien carajo le vamos a comer las camizas?

Days of our lives

So it’s my first week as a partially employed person. I don’t know what to do yet. I don’t know what to write yet. I guess I just thought that working would fall right into place and all but not as easy as I thought it would be. It’s a bit more complicated right now.

My thoughts are flooded and I am restless. I can’t sit for more than ten minutes at a time. I am only working 2 days a week during the days. I still have various evening engagements. Some paid.

I have the new bi-weekly DJing gig that is giving me a good small chunk of cashola. If anyone is around, I’m at Manahatta which is at 310 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston from the hours of 6:30pm to 10:30pm.

Everything else is various at best.

I am making enough money to pay bills and a little on top of that, but its situations like this that make me happy to work at a bar. I get to drink cheap and that helps things.

Urban Word mentoring helps the pocket as well but I am almost done with regular workshops for the season. The summer is not a busy time over at Urban Word.

What I do know is that I don’t want to return to regular work. I don’t want a regular day job at least. Maybe a few more nightlife gigs would be nice. Bartending or DJing or something along those lines. I am exhausted of Day Jobs or full time jobs that bring no type of satisfaction to me. Maybe I should have gone to college if that were the case but I didn’t. I’m 27 and I’ve been working 6 to 7 days a week for the last 10 years. Now I have a total of 4 days a week where I am not really working for someone else.

With this time I want to really work on my own stuff. Be it poetry or music or promoting or making deals and having a regular hustle, this is what I want to do. Find a way to make money while working on my arts.

I’m fortunate to have enough money to pay bills without falling behind, and I am fortunate to have a girlfriend who is supporting me during this confusing time.

I’m happy yet terrified.

Today is day one.

Tomorrow I will work. Wednesday I should have off but I have to make up a few hours.

Friday I don’t know what to do.
I’ll figure it out though.
Writing prompts would be great right now Send them to me if you can. Please.

That’s it for now.

Miss Landmine 2008

Angola is a country littered with land mines. People still trip on them and live, without a limb usually.
So this beauty pageant was made to uplift some of the survivors. Survivors indeed, living through a land mine is massive.

I hate beauty pageants a whole lot. I don't like them at all. Besides the fact that I find them horribly boring, The woman who win usually don't seem any type of interesting. The Miss Universe Pageant have turned into an Olympic/world cup type of event, everyone rooting for their country. I still remember how happy I was to find out that Miss Dominican Republic won a few years back. We are a tiny country in this world and winning shit on a world platform just makes me happy.
Besides the fact that the girl who won is like 6'5" and is the niece of my favorite musician, Juan Luis Guerra.

Anyway I heard about this pageant in Angola a few months ago, and didn't pay it much mind because it was still in discussion not in action. Well this morning, on the BBC, I hear about the first Miss Land Mine 2008. Hearing the joy in the Portuguese tongue, of a woman who lost her leg, who wont wear the prosthetic because it is too heavy, who feels beautiful, who should constantly be reminded that she is beautiful.

Clinton vs Iran

"Hillary Clinton has issued a stark warning to Iran, as Democrats in Pennsylvania vote to choose between her and Barack Obama to run for president.
She said the US would attack, and could "obliterate" Iran, if it launched a nuclear strike on Israel. " - BBC

Really Hillary? Honestly? We want to attract the people who just wish we would use our nuclear weapons more often? Or at all.

I'm shocked. Through this whole democratic primary I made no attempt to hide the fact that I want Obama. I have many reasons and I'm not going into them right now, but allow me to say that I would've voted for Mrs. Clinton in a heartbeat if she won the Nomination. Now I don't know. Seems like stupidity.

If Obama doesn't get the nomination, I may not vote.
Its not like it'll matter in the general election anyway. The blueness of NY will never fade. At least not in the next few months.

But really Hill, you would obliterate a country that doesn't even have nuclear weapons, if they did manage to get those weapons and bomb another country. They didn't even bomb us, but we are all captain save a hoe , so we must run and bomb another country. For revenge, not help. Once that bomb goes off, there is no help. Only revenge. Counter strike.

"That's a terrible thing to say, but those people who run Iran need to understand that, because that perhaps will deter them from doing something that would be reckless, foolish and tragic," she told TV channel ABC.

In response, Mr Obama said: "Using words like 'obliterate' - it doesn't actually produce good results, and so I'm not interested in sabre-rattling."

He said only that Iran should know he would respond "forcefully" to an attack on any US ally.

Isreal are big boys now, and they have proven such. Diplomacy is a better solution to all this big dick talking.

Really folks.

Truth be told, the USA has been the only country in history to use a big bomb. Twice in fact. I honestly don't believe that there is another country crazy enough to use it. I think we'll be the ones to start the nuclear war if it does happen. So Mrs. Clinton's remarks seem as she is trying to enter us in another Cold War.

Did she want Pennsylvania that bad? So they love guns there, I don't think that means they love big bombs that go boom.

I want Obama to win, and the only reason that I might not believe that he will win is because I have no faith in the country whatsoever. The country has fucked up way too much for me to take it seriously. What does a brotha gotta do to get an EU passport?
