Russell McGee Jr ( a.k.a Genesis the Greykid ) has published a color-fresh book of poetry titled "Words in Grey", realizing his ability to connect a diverse array of people -- from top-tier business mavens to homeless vets. Because Genesis has never met a stranger, and befriends individuals from all walks of life, he has an uncanny ability to learn their stories.
While serving as poet & artist of the Manhattan based media label Creative Control TV, Genesis moved back to his southern roots where he has found a new voice running creative/poetry workshops out of various studio spaces for the community. In these workshops, Genesis would get artist to think differently about the creative self, their writing, and collectively explore the pathway to that "hidden wholeness" inside of us, through his Words In Grey sessions.

Greykid's poetry reflects the lyrical touch of an E.E. Cummings, rich in observation and whimsy.  And like Shel Silverstein, he uses color as a template through which he views a day or a choice encounter.  His tone is straightforward and conversational, but one is left thinking "I wish I had said that."  Words in Grey is a book that guides the reader to observe -- and speak with Genesis' sense of color and insight.  

Words in Grey is easy to pick up, and hard to put down. Not only does it include 77 of Genesis' original works, it also includes several pages of writing exercises for his readers so that they, too, will be encouraged to engage in their own creative reflections.

From the Author:

Poetry to me, is the lofty attempt of capturing your own soul and placing each glowing part into words you feel are true and honest...words that try to reflect all the little voices in your head. My journey through life, through language, all began with poetry....every time I wrote something, I felt I learned more about myself. It was this discovery from within, that fueled a desire to share my work with others. Writing this book has been a humbling experience, a beautiful one, that i'm so glad to be sharing with you.Cheers!

From the Inside Flap:

Pages 80 - 114 (grey thoughts and blank pages):For the last 3 years I've been conducting poetry workshops with a crew of creatives, writers, homeless folks, athletes (really diverse groups) in the community. Each session we have always consisted of exercises I'll put together or with the help of the group, collectively come up with. The point of these exercises were intended to not only experience something amazing together, but to also work out different parts of the creative self. Whether you write, draw, play sports, engineer, whatever it is, we all felt that exercising this creative muscle in various ways, once you applied it to your own particular craft, could add a beautiful texture toward everything you do. With that said, I hope you enjoy the moments you create from pages 80 onward.
