The creator should rule her creations,
I am the Master...

totally enamored of themselves -
the urgency of their idle chit-chat.

Humbling Pride
What need have we of arches?
What need have we of domes?
What need have we of Churches?
What need have we of Romes?

You're bracing for 
the hubristic lecture
it's not here

The crux:
unvarnished understanding
of how blacks see
their outlook for life

Only narrow options:
they can give in, go through

He rolled the boulder with his burdened shoulder up that treacherous summit
Tricked in hubristic self-righteousness again and again he thought he had done it

the so-called shady side of town.

cold ashes fall
charred history’s
hubristic gales

into the weariness
wonder...
