To Ntozake Shange


"somebody, anybody sing a black girl's song"

you did that for us 

& danced our dance / & spoke our truth 

& we are richer for it

we love you fiercely

for illuminating the god within ourselves

you changed our world and lives

with yr poem

& yr heart

fly free 

we will have to get comfortable speaking with our own voices





on the news of the transition of  Ntozake Shange

Good tribute.

Good tribute.

Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
