What It Be

 



Thunder Making Words
is my contribution to a long tradition 
of wordbearing
wordsoundpower
nommo
wrdsngpdr
per son
in the beginning was the beat...
I believe that to be true

I have been fortunate
since early childhood
to sit among the conversations
and at the feet of 
Master Teachers

my bodyfather sometimes fears
it has made me 
arrogant
I think
it has made me ever more
self-conscious
we all
have the capacity
to be giants
few of us
are strong enough
to live that life

what Assata say?
something wild like
'only the strong 
go crazy
the weak just
go along'

1 of my Teachers
is going through
a time of tribulation
I write
these words
in part
for Kb5
for a place called CowPastor
