Premium Member Summer of '67
My canopy of early summer sounds
in 1967
was as intimate as adolescent knowledge
might ever become.

My sixteenth summer
sweetly smiled with driver's permit,
my first job,
economic promise while the Beach Boys
and the Beatles sang a rainbow
of boy band diversity,
sang...

Premium Member What doesnt kill you makes you stronger
Remember what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Don't stop believing in the strength that lies inside,
get up, stand up until you can stand no longer.
You gotta be strong against the fools who misguide.

Don't stop believing...

I'm planting trees today.
Cherry trees in front,
Peter on the street,
Paul in the middle,
with Mary closest in toward the house,
all on the far side of our gravel drive.

On the same southern side,
along my neighbor's new above...

The Hunger

For days now he had hungered.

His search took him along many an avenue,
where his pleas were so harshly ignored.
But his need was such he had to continue,
so to all that he met he implored.

Many turned...

Saloon
Squeezed between office buildings
On lower Broadway
Desolate and out of the way
Faint neon sign marks the place
For the downtown art scene.
Poetry readings on Sunday afternoons
Only the regulars show up 
Invited or not 
Some mount the stage...

When I die

Sitting here in the dark thinking

Listening to Johnnie Taylor

Taking me back down that old

Memory lane..

Singing “I believe in you”

While the rain beats against my

Window pane..

All the fun memories of my

School days ring out loud...

Deeper and deeper We go, 
inside hell,
While shouting paradise is for the rich
So we hope, so we smoke dope
Deeper and deeper we go
The abyss, the hell I had to come out of
To my dark complexion...

When blackness turns into light

Society could not deny
what we saw
with our own two eyes.

We saw blackness
turn into light
soulful stars
illuminating
white nights.

Jackie was a pioneer
his love lifted us 
higher and higher
his black voice
shining bright in 
the white...
