26 –  27

My dad said avoid being that guy
the old man in the corner of the club.

The guy nursing cherry wine or a more contemporary courvoisier and coke.  

1Xtra keeps me musically on trend, though I question its taste more daily. 

Future’s drawl’s too dank for my De La ears. 

My playlist,  it’s turned more club classic than new bangers
Brandy, Jahiem and Tribe doing concerts to my demographic. 

Didn’t they used be called SWV, Soul II Soul & Sade?

My classic playlist speckled with now cringey R&B…

… the odd Blink 182 I used to hide in my youth,

It’s overdue teenage angst now aloud. 

It’s not contemporary 

but it has the honest sound of a new old black man. 


What do you feel?
