Gris-Gris, an online journal of literature, culture & the arts


by Ana Silva

Remember when you wanted to be
A real gangsta with a couple of Gs
Long socks up to your knees
Tattoos from your head to your feet
Creased up- keeping it clean
Rolling around with a couple of fiends
Music and drugs is what you bring
Committing crimes is how you think
Keeping it real is your thing
So don’t mess up and think of me
Remember who you wanted to be.
