What does it mean to be Hollywood Woke?
Does it have anything to do with the legalization of smoke?
No.

Hollywood Woke sounds like it could mean a lot of things,
let’s start with the era when to my roommate, I was “the perfect wing.”

I used to reside at Sunset Blvd and Normandy Street.
I had to move back to Dallas because Hollywood keeps a mean week.

Hollywood, Hollywood. It’s where the stars really shine
even if they’re just LED lights on a high-traffic strip, in a line.

It doesn’t matter. So very live is the chatter
that a womans lips and arse should be fatter
if she intends to attract a cash-heavy batter.
The how’s and ‘the long run‘ – don’t matter.

cardib-butt_art.jpgA population is woke and willingly renders every saving dime to endanger their bodies
if for only 15-seconds for someone with a successful sum to cat call them a “hottie.”

But this is hardly the definition of Woke. This seems to be the definition of sleep.
Most young girls would agree, still onto the plastic surgeons URL they creep.

They may vow not to do drugs and many don’t smoke
but they’ll do anything to be Hollywood Woke.

Though no group of people could ever outshine the legacy to and fro
that happens on Hollywood Blvd when Hollywood is Woke.

The week starts on Monday; we’ll just meet after work at the bar.
Likely somewhere in walking distance. On Monday’s we rarely went far.

Tuesday is rideshare time.
We’ve got a designated driver and at the bar by 9.

We’d return home a few hours into Hump Day’s morn;
we’d all would file into work a little tattered and torn.

Our spirits were still stoked
because Tuesday’s social scene was dope.

Wednesday after 7 pm we would gather together again
at our pad or their’s for a conversation to stir among friends.

Midnight would usually usher our boisterous socials to an end,
tho many times we went from hanging tough – straight-away to work again.

Hollywood Woke. It can happen in any state,
this is just my recollection of the intersecting day-to-day.

Thursday nights would usually catch us getting all jitted up,
ordering a taxi/rideshare to deliver us to and from the club.

Business cards were in tow and bosom’s were pushed up high.
Drinks were often free for our group of girls — no lie.

I’m not much of a drinker, but a thinker so I kept my eyes on the time.
The pre-weekend spin included a lot of gin and hook-ups that lead to grinds.

None of which were ever chronicled to be mine; I was betrothed with a reserved heart.
It was common for me to wake up Friday morning alone at its bella start.

Twerkita-n-Friends2018It’s the weekend baby!” It’s what we’d say as we gather to club again.
Girls on the town, we love to get down and capitalize a good time during the weekend.

Hollywood Woke. When did the weekend ever end?
Every day we went out to bar, club or hang out with friends.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday sewed up the spin.
On Monday we’d  rest up at the bar for 1-2 drinks with friends
to plan the week’s events in specific and do it all again.

They don’t sleep on that side of town, they don’t pass out, stop or choke.
Who can sustain a life like that? Are you living Hollywood Woke?

I am, but I’m not.
I couldn’t keep up with the partying snots.

My Hollywood Woke: Monday – Wednesday I’m early to rise;
4:30 am finds me opening my eyes.

I pray, meditate and write a little bit.
Then I run over to the blog and create Griot spit.
It’s you that I love hanging with.

I go to school in the day and homework until night falls.
Thursday and Friday I film a variety of shots and edit-ball.

Saturday and Sunday, I rest up and just do me.
That might include Zouk dancing and several movies.

Hollywood resides inside of me; it has a productive place.
I stay woke with a lump in my throat chronicling America’s face.

It’s a story of suspense; it’s a reality show,
I’m Qui
just chopping-it-up with thee on several degrees of Hollywood Woke.
