The HeArt of Brooklyn

I wish to seek as much art out of Brooklyn as possible. And there’s so much here that even the Brooklyn Museum opens its doors for free every first Saturday of the month.

When the weekend comes, I’m sure everyone wants to just go to a happening club and party all night. But museums and open mics appeal to me more.

I enjoy being slapped with culture and overwhelmed with international deities. Learning about different histories intrigues me and that is why I’m releasing my poem entitled, A Ride.

When I read it’s like a ride, a roller coaster ride

That’s better with a friend but I’m my own best guide

I like to see the world. The past, present and future

It’s like learning about my mom, and all the moms before her

I can travel across the land, see beauty far away

To a time where Amber Rose earrings were in play

Take me there museum! I wana go there today

Give me something to remember when I’m old and grey
