You must be a friend, partner-in-crime, relative, artist I enjoy or cool-arse person. This page is for the “first adopters” to No Jewels, my poetry book and soundtrack (not poems but soul music soundtrack)  a book about  selfishness interrupting a child growing up courtesy of Flowered Concrete & Afrockin Music.
