"BULLWORTH"

 

Orange tan conceals

the whiteness of the ghost
subtle cackles sound

 

You’ve got to be a spirit

cries mystical rastaman

 

He stumbles along

still offering redemption

to those fading ghosts

 

The song silhouettes the sky

Spirit can defeat the ghost



 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one is published in a Moonstone Press anthology called Remembering Amiri Baraka.  I wrote after watching Baraka's cameo performance in the movie Bullworth.
