Who Am I
health, black african american, faith,
I am the ring around Saturn
spinning words as particles of ice and dust
with the power to transcend
I am the original chosen to be right here...
angst, confusion, depression, health,
A fleeting still small voice tries to warn me
A sudden overwhelming desire to run
The tell tale taste of metallic flakes
Means my nightmare has begun
Each Day Takes its Turn
health, black african american, day,
we strive to make sure
each day enlightens us
and brightens us
even as light fades...
Faith, Trust and Irony
caregiving, health, work, me,
She's dressed in freshly laundered scrubs,
a floral top and pants pale blue.
There for a moment to hand me a gown,
and tell me what to do.
Living With It
cancer, health, life,
It crouches above the ripe strawberry of her left nipple -
a swelling blot on the flawless skinscape of her breast;
a mortality reminder, a dead bell...

Reaching out towards freshness all ripened,
Holding onto huge branches hovering high,
Not bothered about tan getting deepened,
I hand pluck lush naseberries straight...

There once was a man from Niagara
whose wiener's so long it would stab ya'
but when it got little
his pills became skittles
SUGAR DADDY - TWO LENSES
father daughter, health, humorous,
I’d heap spoonfuls of sugar in my tea
I wouldn’t drink it without it you see

Wasn’t poured down the sink
Every single drop...
Angela's Right Hand
faith, health, loss, peace,
The function of a human hand?
Writing a message, making a bed,
Opening a jar, dialing a phone,
Putting on pantyhose,
Touching the face of a child,
Or a lover.
Ode to a rose on a sunset
health, caregiving, dedication, devotion, happiness,
A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as the clouds dip into the sea.
A kiss from that rose as the waves fall,
over the beach...
Moonlight on the Ward
Midnight. This white ward
drifts softly through chalked moonbeams
shifting walls argent to cream,
sifting sterile halls.
Full moon fingers reach within
touching each silvered sheet-shroud.
Jaded nurses drowse,
vials drip crystalline...

And my body is acting strange
So I went to see the doctor who said
Not to worry, as I was...
I am Me, Set me Free
cancer, creation, environment, health,
I am given to you by Creator Himself
My Limbs long to grow straight and tall
Bathed in sunlight from above, paying homage

I love you just the way you are
(after they buff that awful scar)
and laser the tattoos over your heart

I wish I could walk without feeling pain
I wish I could live my life again.
I dream of a time when I could run like a...

Mind just wandering, immersed in pain
She was wondering if it was true that angels cry
Each time they...

He comes rolling around
I hear the wheels, I know the sound
Everyone clears out of the way
Except me, I stand my ground
With a smile and...
I'm Not Alone
feelings, health, husband,
Tears were rolling down his face, he told me.
I heard them in the sound of his sad voice.

components of my soul aligned,
I became something new
