This is good. Me and my daughter was just reading about Gwendolyn brooks the other day.
Black love, provide the adequate electric
for what is lapsed and lenient in us now.
Rouse us from blur. Call us.
Call adequately the postponed corner brother.
And call our man in the pin-stripe suiting and restore him to his abler logic; to his people.
Call to the shattered sister and repair her
in her difficult hour, narrow her fever.
Call to the Eldersâ
our customary grace and further sun
loved in the Long-ago, loathed in the Lately;
a luxury of languish and of rust.
