  1. “THe one i love” “graffiti”

    ….She use to be all over my neighborhood, names cover walls, she traveled all five boroughs, she had queens and kings, she even had bombers and artist, i fell in love with her since the ball buster days and comes across her as a story from my ancestors, since the latin quarters days, she came from the bronx,slowly spreading all over the world, but she started loosing , big brother started hitting on her, covering her up with gates and guard dogs at the place, she started dying slowly, last time i heard she was getting fucked by the vandal squad, her glory days became dark days, i was born in 90 but the love for her was passed threw generation, as i grow old she’s dying, places she use to cover are now extinguish,i see her dying, even though i don’t wanna believe it, i hear the beep, i feel her pulse, its low, but i will continue todo her all over my city……i love her….she goes by the name of “GRAFFITI”
