5am, pavement a hint of blue opposite of mayhem look for clues no visible signs of tires, lazy signals way home from a long night out and about faint sounds of paper routes I can send shouts cross-town check the time the second hand pegged at first glance starts to move in a quantum chance with help from back of the eye lids soles peel off the concrete feel free to complete unfinished poetry in a black book with a hook to boot staircase of air past the mezzanine eye level wit multiple tiers while stories ascend vacant offices signs for rent sailing around the bend x3 upward stream will take you there bizarre affair balloon mind state hovering straits dock to ships, piers for windows appear to kindle giant murals painted by rays chisels produce all shades of gray sun dial towers over parks light devours remnants of dark diodes slowly fade to rest material properties made to test unprimed canvas staff of cables early birds sound off in triplets silhouette on billboard getting up in the frame without leaving a single trace underneath, leaves waver like seaweed train cars sleep in beds for eels miniature models, life-size goals am I flying? more like swimming in a metropolitan aquarium let go of equilibrium million-volt phosphorescence oscillating reflections bit by bit increase resolution bit by bit gain perspective as I come down rubber kiss the asphalt eerie stillness, teary yawn hour glass smashed by tide of dawn
blazing sun can make you crazy sauna streets can make you lazy no ac hit the fans, summertime in nyc the bare skins can drive you crazy what have I done for me lately oh lady gimme a chance, summertime in nyc sweltering clothing, sugar rays, welterweight asphalt humidity arrives in alternate waves water hydrant sprays in the ways of children hop puddles on pavement reflect the cadence black and white and gray, love and hate so classic like radio raheem sounds careen off the walls and echo in halls a short story long, twenty-four like jack b nimble on the tracks of all trades beats for cheese, eyes like knives, fixed on tease a smile and a chat open doors like keys so what am I supposed to do on trysts like these the twists that follow got you weak in the knees but the week is never-ending and the legs begging please take me to a place where we can chill nomadic and the hot spells take a back seat to the magic flirting with the triple digit heat prospects on the mound I'm a scout sweat dripping on the seats you jealous 'cause they get butts in the stands fans get rowdy at the players with their heads in the sand the beach bodies and the hotties got the party jumping but I'm on the boardwalk snapping instagrams sipping iced blue bottle with the crew getting tanned all the while my mind is a wandering… a plan is a plan so you must overstand that it's never set in stone unless you get a grand on a ticket better brand that, patent that move or a pattern like a panda independent plan that next step then you fill a gap like a tooth fairy gotta be a busy bee if you want the queen trust me, you don't want a brat oh it's tragic you know comedy? shoot numbers automatic
