BOLD AND BRIGHT SHINE THE LIMELIGHTS - A LIGHT? MY PASH UNEARTHED BUT AT MIDNIGHT THOSE HEADS THEY ROLL TIS’ AN OBSSESSION BUT A GREEN MAN i AM P-PERFUMED WITH OPPRESSION RED AND RA, THE CHROME AND RUST. MY COMPLEMENTARY MATCH TO REACH MID-LUST. DRINKS UP EMOTIONS NOW A RENOVATED SELF. NEAR THE GREEN ITS SHWOING MUSTARD YELLOWS GROWING AND IF I CANT REACH THIS KHAKI LAND? THEN BACKTRACK TO THE SPECTRUM AND REACH FOR MYULTRAVIOLET HAND. TO REACH THIS RUSH i MUST NOT RUSH . NORTHERN LIGHTS - GREEN, SEATED IN A CYAN SKY BUT STILL WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE? TASTING ITS TONES ALL THE TEXTURES ALL THE SAME, MY HAIR i MOISTURISE WITH A BORON FLAME YOUCOULDTOUCH OURRUSHOFNEWBEGINNINGS,. GRASS IS GREENER, BLEEDING IS FEIGN, AND I NO LONGER FEEL ITS PAIN - BYPRINCE UGORJI

“Sam I am , and I do not like green eggs and ham” There are many ways of communicating styles; especially across different personas enforced through culture, race and sexuality. Sam wears an urban an urban stlye mixed with his liking to the Bay City rollers :AScottish pop band whose popularity was highest in the miid 1970s and known for be teen idols of their time. His style also transcends from UK culture to the U.S in the ‘Bronx’

“My hair used to be down to my ears, I’m so glad i cut it off, its so refreshing and freeing!” Fashion, and styling transcends clothing, for Sam it also ties into hair as it is another way in which all people from all walks of life display their character and identity .Alike others, Sam sees shaving the head as an important ritual.
