hip hop greats

“The god of night doesn’t wear a crown of stars,
he wears a tattered snapback.
He doesn’t sit on a throne in the sky,
he sits on the sidewalk in parking lots, smoking a cigarette under flickering street lamps.
The god of night doesn’t send soft howls into the wind,
he croons into a mic at a seedy bar with relaxed, smiling patrons.
The god of night doesn’t love the day,
he loves the one who chases dawn with purple crescents under his eyes and leans into him after a sleepless night.”
