in their fathers’ Bronx

youth strength & hunger moaned

thru lingo dirty 70’s air of a mother’s hell

coiled pain spirit vessels angry

hustle / daily / survival what is

another is

never to become organic culture growth

jerked trajectory / curved esthetic flattened straight

life locked tight in soft cymatic weaponry ecstasy

tasty false myth & okie doke pedagogy swallowed whole


forgive you

for you no not

why you do





hides behind

other useful idiots with an auto tune

About a. edward watkins

With the exception of 2 years study of western music theory and harmony- I am a self taught percussionist, writer and abstract painter. Not your drummer boy drummer - not your writerly writer nor the painterly painter. Creativity is an integral aspect of my existence - as it is for us all - in some form or another. My experiences in life have informed and shaped my world view profoundly. I am the disrupter - the never quite satisfied - the relentless creator of word, sound and image. I question the answers and question the questions.
