: NICAHEL LEE JOHNSON
: Tequila

Single life is-tequila with lime, shots of travelers, jacks, diamonds, and then spades, holding back aces- mocking jokers paraplegic aged tumblers of the night trip. Poltergeist define as another frame, a dancer in the corner shadows. Single lady don’t eat the worm… beneath the belt, bashful, very loud, yet unspoken. Your man lacks verb, a traitor to your skin.

: MICHAEL LEE JOHNSON
: Jesus in a Nighttime City (V3)

Jesus walks Southwest side Chicago nighttime city in bulletproof vest barefoot broken beer bottles glass, stores closed, blasted windows, mink furs stolen, a few diamonds for glitter- old parks, metal detectors, quarters, nickels, dimes, coins in the pockets of thieves, black children on Merry go rounds, Maywood, IL. danger children run in danger in spirit, testimony, red velvet outdates Jesus' robe.
