#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.

I always want to make jawns for people to sit with. At least three or four per project. Songs to write, clean, workout, think or hanky panky to.
104 Seconds was constructed to fall on the one, when on repeat. Play it enough times and you will NOT know where it starts or ends. But you might cure the common cold or make the neighbors side-eye you in the morning.
