African Contemplation

A New View


Encountered, loud ignorance

with a gun wanting to recruit

me. I have had my hat filled

with men telling me what I

should think based on their

non-existent perspective.


Found, an elite offspring who

only spoke of selfish endeavors

while painting me everything

but honorable.


The feminine version is more

ego derived than the male version.

We compete with the air, calling

more  attention to the intellect

and the winning and the looking

more central than anyone else.


Roots grow downward in a trophism

seeking soil from which to deep-sip

personal nourishment. I did not waste

the time to tell my co-descendents

they did not matter all that much.

I had such high opinions. Intuited,

humans come in multi-colored cups

of culture.
