Is It Poetry

(1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)

Why As A Negro I Stand


Hands and feet unbound.
Forgotten the ones that come after.
I have heard of them speaking to.
A way of songs,
that they don't sing of.

Nubian minister's.
Eyebrows raised the eyeshadow,
is there.
When you have to have nothing,
nothing else matters.
Master of the word.
And praise for the answer to.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
