#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

NO JEWELS has been a blessing and is the first of three books. The second A BOOK OF LOVE is a little warmer, kinda. Water & Chocolate is gem from the second poetry book's soundtrack.
A head nodda. A vibe as Dot Ichiro explains!
constant is what i crave
long nights and early days
who wants to do what i do
closed eyes to lead the way
a tight palm & an ugly face
when perfect is you
