(Sometimes, the best way to find words is to remove them from your space.  Robert Glasper makes amazing music for that.  Jazz, man.  Day 125…)

No lyrics to this.  Just enjoy his interpretation of sound…

It’s like a civic duty
The right thing for me to do
Is write.
Apparently, I’m healthy enough to be considered a good donor.

I give
And give
And give
The needle enables habits.
Makes me an addict
Of the idea that it’s the thought that counts.

No matter how weak it leaves me
I love to give blood.
I do so with the notion that maybe
Someone uses my vitals
That I save someone’s life
Or I save my own in case I develop bad blood

Sometimes the life I save through science
Is my own.
