Bitter Poem - Cold War Kids

The rest of the interview focuses more on Mackie’s role as Tupac Shakur in the upcoming Notorious, but his comments on Jesse Owens are spot-on. You can learn more about Owens and why he’s so important at the website run by the Jesse Owens Trust.

I was trying to tuck them away with every word that I spoke but somehow they kept sticking out around the edges.

and for every tuck I make you pull on them begging them to unravel right before your eyes.

Why do I care? I care because you’re worth it. Not because you owe me something. Not because I want something.
