Hold out your hand

I take your hand, take your hand

I slappy it playfully when I said

You were made to make me kind of mad

When you choose to pull away your hand

I can’t think or make a stand

All want to do is hold your hand

But you hold it out, and then pull it back

When I ask for you to cut me some slack

I don’t ask more than any other man

Please give me what I want…and hold out your hand

I’m a likin’ to the nails that your correcting

You have the strength in the grip that your making

There is a age that shows your texture and your grace

I see it in your hands, and in your face

You bring me joy when I see you express

The things and thoughts that bring you happiness

I hope that every card that makes you chose to fold

All of your fears that continue to be untold

Hold my hand and let your cares be gone

Hold my hand and let your hesitancy be done

I’ve been waiting for the moment that you let

Your inhibitions at the door with no regret 

Latency

Why do I have to adjust to other people’s clocks

If my engine drives when the key unlocks

Time has shown there needs to be decency

In my internal circus and continued latency

In due time there will be commitment

But waiting continues a growing resentment

So move on with your freedom and do what you want

That is the tact and in 108 font

Bold, direct and in my face

It’s time to move and to find a new place

Go into my lane and speed or slow when I choose

Without being concerned of minds that I may lose

Given a choice it seems to be better

Moving my posts to be my trend setter

Nice and Fresh

Just want to get to know you

To see what makes you sweet

Maybe there was some sour

That turned your soul sugary

When you ask what you want

From what could be you and I

I just want to get to know you

to see if we’re eye to eye

I’m not in a rush, panic, or in a hurry

Or to get your algo from only one query

Maybe I’m not pressing cause I’m in an open phase

I’m not the one to add to your list of crays crays

Rosie said that you were planning on keeping things down low

Rosie said you had enough of one night gigolos

Marsha said you made a choice to keep substantial distance

From being lured into a partnership of substance

Which is fine for what I imagine could be friendship that is true

I’m in the slow lane and just want to get to know you

I know that your influence could be important down the stretch

Time to get to know you and keep my dreams nice and fresh

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets last night had a Pacific Coast sesh

Against a team of short health trying to mesh

Kyrie showed that he still has the handles

While burning sage and, what’s next, candles?

His teammate plays fire with burner accounts

But KD can play when everything counts

Not like James Harden who has a pout session

Against a rook by throwing balls his direction

But back to the Brooklyns who have depth to spare

Who everyone picks for the Finals to be there

So Vegas would like you to unload your kitty

On a Kyrie, a Kevin and Spencer Dinwiddie

Never mind; the Heat who were triumphant last year

To get to the Finals in a Orlando bubble lair

Or Philadelphia with a healthy Embid

Or a Miulwaukee whose leader got more green

And Nets have many first years, including their coach

And Nash has to be careful on on his level of approach

With these mercurial stars in his stable

The Brooklyn Nets: for real or a fable?

Adios James Harden

The Heat of Miami says it’s time to move on

From James Harden as good as gone

But the base they continue to fawn

For the days of Big Three and spawn

Championships and Finals repeats

Read about Harden and learn all the deats

He shrinks when things get deeper and harder

Like a costar who acts with Ali Larter

It wasn’t enough to have a Westbrook

He was grooving before the COVID took

Then his coach and GM would skip

Then he ventured to a club where they strip

Then the rumors started that he needed to bale

And pictures came out and he wasn’t eating kale

And the teams he proclaimed would be happy

Except like the Knicks who expect to be crappy

Of course the Heat would be on the list

With the culture, the coach, and the players to assist

But the Rockets they would like a boatload package

And thoughts of gold would be turned into cabbage

Let’s run with the crew that got to the Finals

Who had the horses with the saddles and bridals

It’s no shame to run it all back

Without a player who reminds me of Stack

Loads of talent maybe top 50 one day

But needs to have help like a Nowitski

If it happens and we happen to land him

James Harden, here’s your weight plan and 24 hour work gym

No Hero

I’m not gonna’ be your Prince Charming

I ain’t going to lie

There’s a frog in me and I’m not sure it’s ever going to die

I’m not gonna be no Superman

I ain’t going to fly

Crypto is my swan song and that is how I ride

Don’t pretend to dream about what you think there could be

Spend some time rethinking things that will make your spirit free

Never let me see that you are wanting what I’m not

I’m not a chameleon and I’m too old to start

The world has your oyster and you need to start to grow

It’s much too early to take your tent and think it’s time to fold

Bring your chosen rock and preach your favorite hymn

It;s time for you to drown so you can learn to swim

I’m not a Caped Crusader

You make me out to be

There is no bat phone that will summon you to ring me

I’m not a Super Surfer

Gliding to your side

This cycle has no side car but only has one ride

Heroes are to fiction what a heroine is to a prince

You can use up all your bait and still never catch a fish

Use that boat and set sail to a place that makes more sense

Plan for your real future without some happenstance

I’m not a Wonder Woman

There’s no magic in my wrists

Set your sights on your goals and don’t expect no twists

I’m not a Aqua Man

Or a Hulk or Flash

Get that serum in your blood before you burn and crash

In Good Time

It’s time to talk without hand gestures

On the ideas that grind, naw and features

Maybe after the holidays are through

Or before if you want a fast truth

No use in getting bothered

When the kids need to be mothered

And avoid any more complication

So let’s start the year with a new proclamation

Find the time to bring me your spirit

Give me a minute to hear me get with it

I have some things that I need to sort out

I’ve had some issues and many a doubt

About what is talent and what may be dust

Proving myself is the thing I most lust

Not some piece or a heart or a pendant

When I am finished you will feel resplendent

Not that you need my blessing or gloats

You have some special things and I’ve taken good notes

Just want to give your gifts a good shine

And that I shall do in all of good time

Relatable

Thrifty with your friendship and with your social mentions

Calculated to create some new dissensions

It’s always been clear that your light bulb was bright

Blinding the density of the people lacking sight

Luring them closer to a place they’re not seeking

Leading to emotions that are not very pleasing

Given up the game because it wasn’t for the taking

Saw the heads up and knew I’d take a licking

Walked away from the table with some chips

Some might say that the experience cause them the yips

But my game was to take the L and not the disgrace

Better to concede and to run another race

Although the thought of you certainly made it a challenge

Had a lot of ideas that chewed a lot of mileage.

But my engine is equipped and all the more stable

Able to think and be relatable

James Harden

James Harden is a fat boy lord

His stomach looks like a miniature gourd

The talent is anything but small

But his muscle tone is that of a rubber ball

Facial hair doesn’t help his stature

Or his gliding dribbling naughty by nature

He has the game to make the top 50

Except in the playoffs then his skill gets thrifty

Now there are rumors of him to the Heat

Not the temperature but the basketball team

Although if he arrives he’ll bake like a ham

Sweaty and dripping from the Riley diet plan

Nobody believes he is straight up for Simmons

Cause Ben’s shots are anything but givens

So the Rocket’s are sniffing at the Heat and their picks

Saying Harden will stir Butler’s Big Coffee sticks

Nothing is imminent except that he’ll be traded

Long since the memory of Westbrook had faded

The other running mate made it to the turnpike

With his burner accounts and Kyrie at the mike

With Jimmy and Bam, James Harden looks good

But give up Duncan puts Riley in a bad mood

James Harden could hoist many Miami shots

And not while watching female body parts

Open Door

I think of you and I can tell

In the air tonight there’s something

We’ve had a thing that’s never washed

Even though many thought it was nothing

I’ve left the door open in case of a change

But it’s not going to filled in a hurry

Grinding with things that I want to excel

Our path doesn’t carry concern or worry

The work has been done and it’s framed in a way

That works together or continues to stay the same

It’s that beach house that cozies in the sand

Or that cabin in a faraway land

It’s omni present and the door is always open

Leading to path where we speak of the unspoken

We can be coy or we can be direct

All lanes are open for the path that we select

That is the best part of being a little wiser

There’s no specter that stops from being nicer

And being patient and confident in the flow

We have magic and we choose what time to go
