Dinah Washington – “Call Me Irresponsible”

"Call me irresponsible - call me unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you
Well I’m not too clever - I just adore you

Call me unpredictable - tell me I’m impractical

Rainbows I’m inclined to pursue
Call me irresponsible - yes I’m unreliable
But it’s undeniably true - I’m irresponsibly mad for you.”

He’s a breath of fresh air. His shit is genius. This dude’s a rhyming animal. I feel like he’s going to be one of the most important writers of our time as we watch him go forward. Without a question, you can already see that.

The love he has from the game is so large that he can almost mumble on the record and it’s going to be in rhythm and it’s going to be next level. There’re so many single artists that the album artist just holds up as a whole different kind of value. And he’s that kind of guy.

"Everything has already been said and done. But, then, if this is so, why do we need more poems in the world? I once read a Jane Hirshfield interview where she said something quite wonderful. She essentially said we have to keep writing because it’s every generation’s job to put in the present vernacular poems that are called upon for rites of passage, such as poems read at weddings or funerals. I hadn’t thought of this before. Your ordinary citizen should be able to go to the library and find a poem written in the current vernacular, and the responsibility for every generation of writers is to make this possible. We must, then, rewrite everything that has ever been written in the current vernacular, which is really what the evolution of literature is all about. Nothing new gets said but the vernacular keeps changing."
