Save your breath! I don’t want to hear what I already know… Your creative
presentation is unwanted and unwarranted. The truth shines clear and pure
when words don’t taint the reality. All uttered explanations are hearsay, ya
dig… Even if it came from your momma, friend or a trend, you still gotta add
your own two cents in; and that small but powerful income comes from your
experience or intuition only! So, who / what is your real homie?… The spirit
already told me, so what you bringing is definitely phony! Exception is..,
that you are totally transparent. Break that word down, why don’t cha! Trans
= across / beyond, and parent = the individual most trusted teaching you the
“ways” of life. Be beyond what is professed or what is taught to you by other
externally minded “teachers,” for they too may have been misguided by the
words that attempt to describe our true reality. Float!, like a buoy and
observe! A picture is worth a thousand words!…

In a day and age where gossipy trivia trumps crimes against humanity with a mere hashtag in popularity,
Tehellme Watchakneau tips on the line between poetry, prose and satire as he portrays a snippet of his mind’s eye, working at a post production firm in…
