Drums

Close enough to touch.
Close enough to taste.
Close enough
Just close enough
Too much to take in all at once.
Bits and pieces of a soul too big to digest in one sitting.
Close enough 
Wet the pallate 
Satisfy a craving 
Enrich a soul, breath love in, exhale love and butterflies. 
Just close enough to smother with rich, rare, to divulge alone.
Close enough. 
Selfish tastings of a gourmet universal, exotic, glowing specimen. 
Private rooms, sweet words, eager stares, longing hands, close enough.
Just close enough.
Take a portion, leave, stay, come close to leave a stain. 
Bleeding hearts.
Just close enough

It doesn't matter how hard they try to limit us, blackness prevails!  There is an ongoing revolution and this generation has been charged with making the foundation proud. The revolution has been televised, publicisized, spoken about emphatically. The black magic that spews from lyrics and the dash of paint on canvas that screams black liberation and pride. The revolution is ongoing.  The revolution is strong. Full black, army fatigue with the sweat and blood of our ancestors streaming down our faces.  Shackled but free!  Singing songs from the Akan tribe!  Upright, steadfast, and in formation.…
