#3030NaPrWrMo Poetry Month writing challenge continues…

I decided to do the National Poetry Month Challenge… I posted my first two poems on tumblr, I just wanted to make sure I had them in my blog to for those of you who just follow me here.

Hope you enjoy the poems and I hope I can get through 30 poems this month!

So I woke up this morning and had a little bit of a panic attack because my play, “Midnight Makeout Session,” opens in two weeks from tomorrow on Dec. 3rd. Now I say “my” play, because I not only star in it, but I also wrote it.

What the play is about and all that, can be found out at midnightmakeoutsession.com, but I’m sitting down right now to talk about why I wrote it… Well see, it’s kinda like a love note to all those who we’re here in Los Angeles in the 90’s, running around this crazy town we call home, Hollywood. We we’re all just kids back then, hustling our careers by day and by night, chasing adventure in the golden age of the LA club scene. Now we’re all grown up and this play discusses all the things I want to talk about to all my friends from those times. Some of us are still here working, some have passed away, some have left town to return to wherever they came from to continue their lives.

I hope friends around town can come check it out and reminisce about some of those times, but anyone who wants to revisit a more romantic time in life, this is for you. It’s also for people who love 90’s Hip Hop and R&B, the play is full of that because that was the soundtrack of my life… For all of us really, back then, every club spun everything from Jay-Z, Usher, R. Kelly t0 Biggie, Tupac… Man, back then, if you we’re at the right clubs, there would be a good chance you would be partying with them! (Shout out to “Joseph’s”, “Dublins”, “B-Sides”…)

And if you’re just a fan of me, well, you’re invited too… If you come see the play, you probably get to know me better. All the male characters are basically different aspects of me, mixed in with my closest friends and the girls… well, you know how that goes, if we’ve dated in the past, chance are you might see a glimpse of you showing up in this piece.

Now, it’s not a perfect play in any way… in fact, it’s the first play I wrote, but it’s me.

So… I personally invite you to the Midnight Makeout Session.

A quick poem from my instagram (@rufiozuko)… People have always asked me to write a poem about “Honor,” well, here it is…

A poem called Honor, for something lost of misplaced
Etched into your consciousness like a scare upon your face
This Honor that you chase, isn’t always what you’ve thought
Matter fact, the fact that you’ve always had it is the very reason
You set out to prove it’s existence from the start.

So here’s a new poem I recently penned. I was driving down Wilshire today on my scooter and and saw a dope piece of street art and decided to jump off the Vespa and spit a quick poem. (Shout out to artist Curtis Kulig!!!) Sorry about the poor sound quality… it was one of those spur of the moment performance… I was just by myself, happened to have my camera on me… I wonder what people thought as they were flying down Wilshire as I’m yelling on the corner.

Hope you enjoy it…
