  • #NoJewels is the narrative style poetry book that inspired the music.

    This book of lines, devices, stanza and spaces hopes to serve them all. Tai Allen writes from a place in which understanding trauma and pain are not meant to be permanent; emergence and peace are better company.

    Oh and the co-signs, blessings: Greg Tate (Village Voice), Okayplayer, SoulTracks, Patricia Spears Jones (Jackson Poetry Prize & legend), Monifa Lemons (Watering Hole) et al

    This is a good read. This is a good vibe.

    Physical Book & Music: $15 or more
    Digital Book & Music: under $15

    Includes unlimited streaming of No Jewels Has Soundtracks! Listen Here via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

constant is what i crave long nights and early days with someone who wants to do what i do closed eyes to lead the way a tight palm & an ugly face are perfect when perfect is you it's like water or chocolate you take a sip and then you close your eyes it's like water or chocolate you take a sip and then you close your eyes
Water starts a fall-ing Sunshine warms the morning Folks are outside off to work and play Watch me hit the snooze Keep my eyes on you Cuz, I'm gonna do my work from bed today -- Good water. Good water Baby you give me good water. Good morning, good morning I wanna be your good mornings.
i think much better after I drink all is clearer after I drink my life is nice after i drink i feel much better after i drink
