national poetry month

his calls and our responses take a rendezvous

spirituals, hymns, cries of laughter, hearts beat in agreement

sister girl braids and hot sauce, locs, cocoa buttered hands and cornbread feed my senses
mutual rivers running down spines flow from different gene pools into this shared space

deep baratones and a harmony of hands rub some understanding out
and this nook in the heart of south central takes me to my familiar

finding my roots in the grooves of my path...
