Listen Children

Listen children
keep
this in the place
you have for keeping
always,
keep it all ways
We have never hated black
Listen
we have been ashamed
hopeless tired ma
but always
all ways
we loved us
We have always loved each other
children all ways
Pass it on

Adam thinking  

she stolen from my bone
is it any wonder
i hunger to tunnel back
inside   desperate
to reconnect the rib and clay
and to be whole again  
some need is in me
struggling to roar through my
mouth into a name
this creation is so fierce
I would rather have been born
