Aqueous Echoes (Where Brooklyn At)



Biggie Smalls


Since today is the 16th anniversary of the death of Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G., I thought I'd combine the prompts Brian Miller & Gretchen Leary posted over at dVerse into this piece...these are the words my niece gave to me from a book she was reading: apple, cotton, drink, escape, teach, defiant, weary, wasteful, map, & ramifications. The song that inspired is called Juicy...



From
cotton fields
to concrete tombs
we drink and dream
of life beyond the confined
and it is juicy with possibilities
both sweet and sublime.


Destined 
to teach
future generations
the meaning of
the weary blues
& how to escape them
if only for a moment;
  

with 
chest out,
ready to map
a brilliant yet wasteful path
to the garden of Eden,
 unafraid 
to savor
bites of an apple
that has become
the ruin of 
many.



Defiant 
of death's many
ramifications,
but it's all good...it's all good.
