Silk – Author Demitri Tyler

Planets around sun

Night around stars

Heaven around earth

Atom around form

Muscle around bone

Spirit around soul

Heat around flame

Image around mind

Your body and mine

A law of nature
even when we’re apart

As silk upon the moth

Is wed my queen
Around my heart

About the Author

Writer, orator and activist, Demitri the poet with the Greek name that if translated would read “dedicated to, follower of Mother Earth,” is a rising voice out of San Francisco planting words of wisdom as if seeds beneath the flesh. His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.

Family tragedy and the realities of life caused this man to hang up his music career and vanish for over ten years but it was time well spent for out of the darkness has emerged a streaking comet who has made the transition from rap to poetry look seamless.
