Poem 10/365:2014 | for Imamu Amiri Baraka

your words are the sun

to a soul lost in the night

the spring of winter

 

I became you

when

I read you 

 

your poems became fire

to a wild bush unconsumed

a revolution

 

you the idea

art

in full bloom

 

you have transitioned

immortalized by your art

beyond our mortal grasp

 

[we will miss you Abbu]
