sweet little son
eyes of rainy clouds
skin of black fur
my little river without end
the dark is a friend
Poem From The Moment After You Left
after Sabrina Benaim
& the truth is
i didn’t cry/ on the sidewalk.
i slipped in the taxi
choked out a greeting the driver didn’t hear
& plugged my ears
with J. Cole’s verses over the Afro-Pop drums.
the truth is
i faked it
when you texted me
from the office saying you’re scared
you’re leaving, and you’re scared.
‘i don’t even know what to say (crying emoji)’
what I should’ve said was:
‘hug me & let’s cry together.’
the truth is
10 minutes after you left
i felt my eyes drinking and spilling
the distance laid out in asphalt
as i stare with blurry vision at the only good picture we ever took
crying is another form of goodbyes.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
