"I keep trying to forget, but I must remember. And gather the scattered continents of a self, once whole. Before they plant flags and boundary my destiny. Push down the watered mountains that blemish this soiled soul before the valleys of my conscience get the best of me. I'll need a passport just to simply reach the rest of me." - Saul Williams

Somebody’s mad

they all laughed at me

not at my joke

but gestured at all of me

the essence of my very own existence

like it was fickle

due to indifference

in my choice of vernacular

secular devotions

hell even the things I decide to ingest

Fuck that Chocolate shit

Give me that caramel, bitch

I mean why can’t I be allowed to be

me

with authority

you utter your opinion in my direction

like you were important enough for

me to take it

into consideration

deliberate deliberation

all because you are running for

governor in my state of mind

meanwhile your home is filled with

idiosyncrasies   

of a mediocre forces

who feed on substandard substances

which means even the turds

that you release

can’t swim in the same pool as mine

your waters can’t be still nor deep

so you need to feel justified

in your benevolence by trying to

degrade mine

Simpleton

I see your worth

and raised it

to an amount your verbal currency

can’t afford

the sound of your laughter

is sampled with years of pain

that only you own the rights to

so let me dance off kilter

to the rhythm of your lament

and two step my ass

right along side

the mysterious and the brave

Fuck you

and your miserably sculpted countenance

this light

still looks good in shade

Artist Lounge: “Waste on Canvas”

The sole use of plastic is something I never thought I would associate with astounding creativity but meet Mbongeni Buthelezi, South Africa’s renowned artist, well known for his distinctive, subjective and inventive art style utilizing plastic and a canvas. Buthelezi has joined the green revolution by using waste to create art by ‘painting’ in recycled plastic.

Buthelezi lived and studied in his hometown Springs, South Africa where he was taught art privately by artist Lucky Moema. He received lessons in perception and sketch from Moema in exchange for bread and tea. Ultimately, Buthelezi made his way to Johannesburg, where he began studying at a community college called Funda.

Buthelezi has used plastic as his main source of material to create his art for the past 22 years. He got his initial inventiveness from a Swiss artist who used plastic as canvas for his artworks. His idea was to use plastic as a canvas as well as paint with the widely available and cheap material. This might leave you to ask: “How does he do that?” He simply cuts the plastics into little pieces and glues the pieces of plastic onto the canvas thus creating surfaces and structures with delicate and altering qualities of various colours.
