What is Missed by Demitri Tyler


I love . . .


Fried green tomatoes

Black olives whole

Salted watermelon

Neck bones

Ox tails

Oysters raw

Chicken feet

Frog legs


Red snapped fish.


Often in my dreams

Sweet potato pie

Pound cake

Peach cobbler



Caramel hips

Cinnamon faces

Sugared sweet

Women that

Raised me

About the Author

Writer, orator and activist, Demitri the poet with the Greek name that if translated would read “dedicated to, follower of Mother Earth,” is a rising voice out of San Francisco planting words of wisdom as if seeds beneath the flesh. His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.

Family tragedy and the realities of life caused this man to hang up his music career and vanish for over ten years but it was time well spent for out of the darkness has emerged a streaking comet who has made the transition from rap to poetry look seamless.
