Heritage

01.10.12

 

the beat taught you everything

bringing focus to your third eye

through the oceanic to-and-fro of hips

and the incessant head-nodding;

   some kinda neverending acknowledgement

  of what is right, funky

the righteousness of how it rendered

 smiles from mean mugs and ice grills

you’d never feel dirty

in it’s sweat: drenching, dripping, spraying

  as a many becomes a one through movement

it’s thrusting, fucking 4/4 sexuality

expanding a common libido like a

  burgeoning galaxy

if only you could run

   faster-than-hi-hats

 or tomohawk through hearts and souls

 with the call and response

ba-dumt-dumt-bap! ba-dumt-dumt-bap!

of kick and snare drums

 

an infinite loop funk soundtrack for life:

the neverending get-down-to-get-up

when, someday, I need a heart transplant

 I hope the technology exists

 to use a HipHop beat to power my bloodstream
