are you looking to be a gumbo?
thinking of being a scrapbook?
aiming for something jazz?
not interested in playing it straight
do your boots say it?
do your trousers say it?
does your shirt say it?
does your jacket say it?
does your hat say it?
you’re not invested in inanimate objects
finding a rhythm in yourself
always punching up
treating time like a climbing wall
working it out in metaphor
never letting the mind get flabby
you are an intellect
talking but not afraid to introspect
it will all eventually translate
