Spontaneous Poem

brooklyn, new york

i fall in love on a weekly basis. the world
threatens to rip me
a part. my blessing
my burden

me, myself, and Irene

brooklyn, new york

most everyone was in a frenzy last year when Hurricane Irene was supposedly going to hit nyc. i wasn't. i was just glad my roommate was leaving town for a while and that i'd have the whole apartment to myself.
though some sections of the outer boroughs were evacuated, and there was some damage in the end, i took it as yet another instance of media hype and fear-mongering. what i did do was take the precipitous climb up to my roof as the storm was passing.

the clouds rushed by, thickly clumped together. a strong wind blew them to the southwest. i was freezing in my t-shirt after a few minutes, but i stayed to watch the sun set. i guess while everyone else was panicking i took it as a moment to appreciate the beauty of what was happening. here's a little of what i saw.

Pop Sensation, KID AKIMBO,
Releases Debut Album, Brazilliant

"New York, New York. January 5, 2011 -- Award-winning International Recording Artist, KID AKIMBO's full-length debut album is now available. Written and produced in 8 cities, 3 states, and 2 countries, “Brazilliant,” features 14 songs in an array of styles. Beginning with a remix of the title track by the inimitable Haus of Glitch (of Lady Gaga Mega mix fame), the record culminates with KID AKIMBO's visionary reworking of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean.
The young singer-songwriter presents a slough of new material as well as re-masters of songs from AKIMBO’s EP, namely, the award-winning track, Disco Berimbau (Riera Remix), the OMA-nominated, Fun Boyz, as well as Moody, an electronica gem that clearly hallmarks KID AKIMBO's signature talent.

'There is something about this talented young man that may be impossible to describe, yet just as impossible to go unnoticed.
...he brings a passionate force and performs from his very soul. His voice, looks, and style captivate.' --DeMarcio Slaughter, Main Stage Entertainment Coordinator, Denver PrideFEST

A headliner at recent events from New York’s Jacob Javits Center to Halifax, Canada’s annual pride festival, KID AKIMBO is gearing up for a CD Release Party at a major Manhattan venue. He has also begun collaborating on new material with the writing collective, The Force.

Brazilliant is available for free download by sending an email to KIDAKIMBOpr@gmail.com. For those wishing to support the artist, CD Baby currently offers the record, with other major retailers such as iTunes and Amazon soon to follow."

KID AKIMBO is an award-winning singer and dancer based in New York City. Voted Best International Artist at the 2011 OMA, his ultra-sexy music video, Fun Boyz, had it’s broadcast debut on LOGO Television and has been featured on MTV and VH1.com.
