The two or three times I saw Lil Wayne
hanging out at the Praline Connection

in New Orleans he had a mouth full of bling
covered in forkfuls of greens or green beans

or white rice & red beans on a tongue
of strange lucrative grammar

The answer will be that which allows
the best possible future when the plaintiffs come

before the judge or the farmers
before the king it is not that which incurs unrest

The photograph does not belong
to the photographer it belongs to the camera

God jury-rigs to the backs of a barn owl & a bat
We get a bird’s-eye view via the camera
