How do I feel on the loss of my brother

 Ollie Jackmon, Soldier, Black Liberation Army, American Gulag, aka Department of Corrections

People ask me how I feel
ain't tryin to feel
don't want to feel
deny feel
silence feel
medicate feel
do you feel his vibration in his house
damn right I feel his vibration 
had to leave
vibration too strong
after a lifetime of missing him
together in the end
in 33rd
loved him
said he didn't know love
sister debbie made him know love died in her arms, died in the arms of love
got to know love in the end
what else matters God is Love
my favorite song Nature Boy say,
"The greatest thing
you will ever learn
is to love
and be loved in return...."
--Marvin X


West Oakland nigguh don't give a fuck

seize west oakland closer the sf than sf
hipsters march black lives matter

fire fire fire fire fire

Black lives don't matter!
Ax somebody
Better ax somebody Houston TX Negroes say
Better ax 'em!
