To Ntozake Shange

Folder: 
celebration

"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

Good tribute.

Good tribute.


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
