Lyrics make it a song
Bars make it a rap
too long and too loud make it a theatrical monologue
unfortunately open mics don’t teach the difference
Poets make words jump from pages to dance
with whomever / even when they are not there
Poets can make water flow from their feet
for everyone to drink
Poetry makes people responsible
turns dreams prophetic
so discipline your ego and teach.
The merlot on my tongue
won’t allow me to speak.
I stain my pillow with attached prayers of something
betwixt the Ghana of my mane.
I walk with a cane looped to my belt to beat a fall
design distance from cerebral lessons
I wear tight shoes to ensure carefully calculated steps
and disavow chances and dances with love.
