Amiri Baraka Has Passed


amiri baraka has passed
hear him tunes ba doo da singing the
lines before the lines, breifcase, papers, grace
i carried it on out home resonating
ba doo da, saying it how it is and
making us all in a word trance and
holding us til the end point to feel it all
in the afterspace of the spell
amiri baraka has passed leave the
legacy sounding on strong and alert
and magical    me paused a moment
thanksgiving to have heard him send his reading
around the room that day, spark to tinder
us all in a word trance and then the
amiri baraka has passed
amiri baraka has passed
amiri baraka
