I'm The First Person Who Has Something To Say To Myself,When I Say Something Stupid.! ( PARTS 1 & 2 )


 Woke Up 
                                                                Late In The Afternoon
But Then Again I Usually Do
I Got Up
Searched For My Cigarettes
Brewed Some Tea
And Went Outside For My Dose Of 
Vitamin D

The Sun Was Warming My Bones
I Held My Arms Out
My Face Up
& My Nose Caught
The Burning Scent Of A Breakfast
Which Made Me Hungry

The Sky Was Beautiful
I Could  Hear The Morning Traffic On Manchester
The Honks For
"That Fuckin' Idiot Up Ahead"
Or The gentle Rattlin'
Of Some Homies Car
Now Is Not The Right Time To Be Bumpin'
Ya Dig.!

I Never Did Find
 Those Cigarettes
But The Tea & The Sun
Enough For Me

I Continued Staring
Wide Eyed & Dumb
At The Cars
Slugging Along Manchester

The Smell Of Burnt Tortilla
Car Exhaust
Filled The Air Now
Bringing Me Back To
My Initial Thoughts

Which Were Nothing At All Really
That I Was Trying To See
How I Felt About Going Back To Sleep

Midnight Walk To The Liquor Store For Some Cigarettes

And I'm Dreading The Same Ol' Cats That Stand Out Front
Of The Store

Tonight Was Cooler Than Past Nights
I Mean They Were Humid & Everyone
Only Seemed To Complain About How Quick
Their Iced Coffees Became Warm Cups Of Coffee

I Don't Really Need Cigarettes
I Was Done Sitting In The House Doing
These Meaningless Chores
Like Cleaning Dirt From My Fingernails
& Seperating Los Angeles City Smog Soiled Clothing
That May Be Washed Within The Week
Or Not

As I Get Across From The Liquor Store
And Right Under The Sign That Reads
Not To Be Kickin' It Within A Certain Amount Of Feet
From The Store
Gather The New Age Wino
Rockin Some Brand New Kicks
& Sippin' On Some Schnapps
From A Little Black Plastic Bag
These Cats Done Moved Up From Drinkin' Forties
To Sippin' On The Good Good
& STILL Hit On The Ratchet Moms
That Pull Up
Jump Out
& Rush It In To The Store
To Pick Up Some
Pom Pom's
& An 18 Pack Of Modelos In A Can

And I'm Dreading The Same Ol' Cats That Stand Out Front
Of The Joint Bummin' Dollars
Even Change If Thats All You Have
As They Say
