Beat Babe: Joaquin

With awards season right around the corner, I think it’s time to tip our hats to a true sage/guru/leader/mentor/genius: Joaquin Phoenix. So I’m going to share a poem I wrote about him, circa 2010. 

~~~~~Joaquin~~~~~

Brother of River.

RIP.

Death, birth, life.

What is your journey?

First you’re hot.

Then not.

Then hot.

Then not.

Then hot.

Then not.

Then hot.

Then not.

Then hot.

Then not.

Then hot.

Then not.

Now what?

Make up your mind.

Free me from your clutches.

Release me.

Or don’t.

Artist.

Artiste?

I’m still here.

For you.

LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.
