Leonard Dabydeen Poems
They Call Me Illegal
They call me illegal unwanted in the eye blue as the sky but only seeing my colour
She creeps around my room lulling any sound whispering in the creak of my chair or the opening of a cabinet
A Gifted World
A Crow's Heart
Shadows move among them, amorphous like the wind
As Tears Fall
As tears fall upon dehydrated cheeks making their own free rivulets without interference
This cool morning breeze keeps my heart beating with joy:
An Uninvited Guest
AN UNINVITED GUEST Let me visit you today
Always On My Mind
...in the vineyards of Edgar Alan Poe... His coffin
It raged in mighty anger like a hungry cougar in motion leaping catapulting
Thunderous applause As the lightning strikes again: Rain rupturing earth.
The Color Of My Skin
I may bring to your attention this posted affirmation through the color of my skin: that I am what I am.
This fanfare must not be choreographed
Our Own World
Our own world
was rich in silver and gold
or so the story was told
when the morning light
filtered through our hopes
