Brooklyn DJ Downtown (Original 03 07 2010)


Brooklyn -downtown and Diaspora
Cosmos stable in every West Afro-Indian
Household a quiet tropical cultural
Heritage hides behind shades drawn
Doors closed on family integrity
Personal legacy and reliable trust inter-
Continental love -cold tracks lead
Back toward directional wakes left by
Spirit –by music on Woodstock Pastures
And on the cricket green
Invisibly curved lapping over and
Backward into ripples of dispensation
Secret falling gravity burial ground
Seed beds holding onto love
Sandwiched by shared rising ramps
Tilted upward to spill island isolate
Birthright on silted sand underwater
To fates –above it all loyalty waves
Surface and rise to white capped
Pyramids into heavenly spires
Brooklyn -fringed downtown Borough
Up river bends turned near tunnel ends
Arch ways Greco-Roman Jewish cultural
Flow ramp descending from the bridge
Orthodox ascetic and gestural drift
As existential acts of blending
Mysterious and spiritual universe
Of foe and of friend finding love matters
To the cosmos lay of man’s loss land.
