The sky moves beneath my feet; a glistening sun burns my feet
I behold in agony - sadness searching for laughter, I turn to old movies
A checkered sunset rises westbound another demonstration of old things turning new
Tempestuous over tides ruin blandishing broomstick houses
A fire consumes my overgrown garden
Rheumy overtures turn on anticipation mode
I wait while I fight fires or let go
The deep dark vilifications waiting below

The sky moves beneath my feet, planets aligned with fate ignites
Success coming in each new breath, intake and release faith
Tremors take hold, separate skin from bones penetrate my will to procreate
A life out of sight a brand new game emerges from flames
I enter a new dimension, time all aglow with hearts and broken rainbows

Forms beneath my feet towers of past delight but mostly hurts out of sight
Letting blame go becomes easier day to day trying to make it burn to incite more delight
Feign letting go, letting go girl is so hard to do
Hold on to just deserts, I got my last swirl in mad swirl swimming in converts following my concerts
I will get mine tonight
The time’s just right
I will get mine tonight

My just delights
Will be mine at long last

Come on and say it with me:
My just delights
Will be mine at long last

XX’s dad insists on calling me rapper and arguing about it is senseless although I deny it. “I am not a rapper.” I say. My Indian physical therapists insist too. “You are a rapper miss Joy.” I deny it again. “I am not a rapper I declare.” I jam my poetry to music, my baby bluetry.” They say, “OK, OK, we don’t know what to call you we want to come out and support you at your next performance.” Call me you what you want. You can’t define my style and there’s the rub, compare me to anyone.

I feel it in my soul tonight, my poetry and voice reveals your heart. Art a la carte is coming to town via Violet. Blowing in with wind.
Living life is out outta sight, and the glory shall be he said to me, death is coming for everyone. I got the right. I overpaid my dues too just like Rodriguez who lives next door to me.

The sky moves beneath my feet at my command
My just delights will be mine at long last, stay in tune for the jazz band
Aligns with sun signs long past due
I contritely join another band with my last strand of energy
Because I will never let go, my words survive.
