Yo! Soca got me out of bed this morning. Got me to the gym. Got me through the fifteen-minute wait for the bus home. Got me dancing on the sidewalk and in the parking lot straight to my apartment building.
One of my favs, Machel Montano, has been doing his thing since he was a kid. I’ve never been to Trinidad but I love the music – when I go I want to be around the natives.
I go to take my shower and Matt has his clothes scattered all over the bathroom floor and a jacket or something on top of the toilet tank. At first, I was going to talk to him, but then a vivid image of my life without teenage boys popped into my head …
I took a deep breath, turned on my music, No Behaviour Shell Down by Cloud 5, hopped in the shower and I didn’t say shit to that muthafucka!
I have to fix some of my recent poems – I don’t like how they look on mobile.
I gotta go dance and eat.
🎶 When you see we in de place. Party done! 🎶
