“Busta Bust Free” feat Erin

(24”x24”; Acrylic on Canvas)

Sometimes all we need

is music to name the experience

to encapsulate the struggle

to chew the unspeakable

into that which is felt


music chews it for us

empowers us to speak

You call me crazy

but you fail to acknowledge what you’ve done

You call me crazy

You call me crazy

I almost believe...

No matter where

we find our home

No matter where

we lay our heads

No matter how we understand

it does not change me

we are because

“Sankofa” feat. Erin

(24”24”; Acrylic on Canvas)

Who is this man

that came along

I know his face

but not his song

Or when I was caught
