Daniel Bard Verses Hanif Verses Shakespeare

  1. This is not an April one joke this is how I roll.

I rode my bike to the bookstore to buy Chanel Miller, no my name. But I’m also taping for different baseball games caught bits and pieces of each. Serve a 35-year-old Texan who went to Chapel Hill North Carolina named Daniel bard got Mickey Betts to punk out. Rather than a grand slam. He had 100 mile heat. But I did also notice a book in the window a black poet talking about culture, Hanif. He represents Ohio. I started to read his essay about gimme shelter. He mentioned that Brian Jones ended up at the bottom of the pool. It’s 84 here in Palo alto I’m going to sit in my backyard and read for one hour for different newspapers Harpers magazine because it mentions Werner Herzog and skateboards Chanel and Rolling Stone with another black guy I’ve never heard of named John David Washington. 
oh brave new world.

Earlier today i used Remi Wolf as a type of dozens I said something the effect quoting her lyric of calling someone the B-word and I’m going to step on his toes. 3.2 million people’s have viewed her photo ID video.

also in this is very far astray from my starting point of baseball or poetry I was reminiscing about some videos from the 80s including Pearl Harbor in the explosion Romeo Void also birdcage by the Negro problem and the merman at the eighth Street fair.

no about rock and roll I mean “what does Robert Hilburn know about rock and roll?” can you dig it?


Edit to add: OK I admit I was working around this point but yet I edited this not very hard-working essay to add the word “abdurraqib” it seemed simple enough to master once I focused. Seems like two fairly popular tropes, “abdur” not “abdul” But I do think of Kareem the basketball player, and “raqib” which sort of reminds me of a character from a spike Lee movie but not. His name is Hanif Abdurraqib, a poet and essayist from Ohio.
