ESCAPE VELOCITY?

My nerves shriek
       I need to reach
                 ESCAPE VELOCITY

My nerves strain
       I must attain
                ESCAPE FEROCITY
            

       Sometimes I snarl
       Easy to quarrel
       Hard to attain
                    my goal, my aim
                                  ESCAPE VELOCITY
                            fueled by
                                  ESCAPE FEROCITY

       I am not meek
              I am not mild
       I seethe I boil
              Like an A-bomb
              I go wild
       Can't keep
             the force
                    INSIDE

       I feel the strain
             The shell won't hold

       That is my goal

       to break the shell
             which keeps me coiled
       to break the spell
             which has such hold

 
             ESCAPE VELOCITY
             ESCAPE FEROCITY
             ESCAPE CAPACITY
             ESCAPE TENACITY
             ESCAPE ELASTICITY
             ESCAPE PERSISTENCY


 
My nerves shriek
      I need to reach
            ESCAPE VELOCITY

My nerves strain
     I must attain
           ESCAPE FEROCITY


     The doors are locked
     The roads are blocked
     The maps are lost

     Can't scale the walls
     Can't cross the falls
     Can't crack the shell
                  of a world
                         sealed
                         stuffed
                         it's had enough

 
My nerves shriek
      I need to reach
               ESCAPE VELOCITY

My nerves strain
      I must attain
              ESCAPE

 
              ESCAPE VELOCITY
              ESCAPE FEROCITY
              ESCAPE CAPACITY
              ESCAPE TENACITY
              ESCAPE ELASTICITY
              ESCAPE PERSISTENCY


 
           I need to streak
                      to a new peak
           Across, through,
                      away, past
                 the doors, the blocks
                 the guards, the stops

 
           But
           The doors are locked
           The roads are blocked
           The maps are lost

           Can't scale the walls
           Can't cross the falls
           Can't crack the shell
                 of a world
                       sealed
                       stuffed
                       it's had enough


My nerves shriek
           I need to reach
                                 ESCAPE VELOCITY

My nerves strain
           I must attain
                                 ESCAPE

                                 ESCAPE VELOCITY
                                 ESCAPE FEROCITY
                                 ESCAPE CAPACITY
                                 ESCAPE TENACITY
                                 ESCAPE ELASTICITY
                                 ESCAPE PERSISTENCY


           I need to arrive
           each nerve alive
           I need to reach
           with force, with ease
           with care, with peace

           I need to attain
           my goal, my aim

                                 BREAKTHROUGH

                                 ARRIVAL

                                 WELCOME

Words Music Rap. ESCAPE VELOCITY.
The doors are locked. The roads are blocked.
The maps are lost.
Can't scale the walls. Can't cross the falls.
My nerves shriek.
I need to reach
ESCAPE VELOCITY.


A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.



WORDS MUSIC WORDS

Every time I'm going
into the words not knowing
what kind of thing I'm doing
what is this thing I'm making
what are these words creating

Words music, music words, rhythm beat,
spoken word, song,
words music, words beat,
rap poetry,
trip hip unhip unzipped
whispered, shouted, sung.

What is this?
spoken word poetry?
rap tap rhythm song?

Where do these words belong?
They don't follow song rules
so they can't be songs
Are some rap
with a rap beat?
Are some spoken word?
Some are to be sung -
country, trip hop, pop, folk, blues,
country folk, rock and roll, rap,
world beat, jazz, folk pop,
rhythm and blues.

words music words
rhythm beat strong
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words to be lived
moments

word music worlds
rhythm beat

What's cooking?
Whatever comes -
words alive
words strong
words music worlds
rhythm beat
strong
movement
words moving
words shaping
words taking
words trying
     to catch life
     to catch moments
        moments like fireflies
          one moment bright
          next moment gone
words
words and rhythm
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words, sounds, music

words music words music
words music words music

words going on and on
like the beat of a drum
word pieces
piecing together moments

word music worlds

stronger
fainter
closer

and then
can't hear
they're gone

like moments
