Writers Block – Author Demitri Tyler


These words will not be bullied into silence


By blank mind page or screen

they will not be pulled at random

fondled in a dark room by white

glove in the name of


Will not be stopped and frisked for

standing while black running while brown

or praying to the east


They will not be halted obstructed

or held these words will gather themselves

say what they mean


The will not stutter when uttered to

freeze they will not hold tongue

while you butter things


They will spill over your

boarders without visa or

green card unzip your Gaza’s

mock your themes


They will not do coffee with cream and sugar

will not call you sugar honey baby or free


They will bomb like graffiti

explode on your walls and bleed


And you’re not use to bleeding are you?

These words will not be checked or blocked by any means!

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.
