in Okland / Arts & Culture

by Derricka Pierson


Shielded was I- the one who waited.

A humming- song bird in the streets of Miami.

Overwhelmed- silence seeps through buildings[smooth sailing yet out- dated].

Most who know what this life is of were once where I am soon to be.

Far from the heights of a year- old Sequoia, with purplish- tan hair.

The scent of Lavender simply streaks swiftly; a smooth scalping filling the air.

Wishes of venturing the universe; by heart and mind.

Escaping love’s wonders; from New York to the U.K. then back towards L.A..

Experiencing lots as collaborations intertwine.

Throughout a year’s cycle; 2015- June through 2016- May.
