of heartbreak, love, religious verses,
Free prose, street poetry, crying-jolly blues, ad-libs
bygones and shenanigans.
Listen to my rhythms as they repeat.
Play me loud and clear
as I disperse tingles in your ear
and sketch the outline of your spine
while on a journey from ear to mind.
Soak me in your soul
until I evaporate from your pores.
Turn me up high.
Let my rhythms kiss the sky.
Balance my treble and hand over the bass
As I jaywalk strings,
To and fro keys,
and waft through horns.
Please, hear me out---
over the rift and raft
of rush hour traffic,
lovers in the mist of making love,
outburst and profanity on the streets,
city’s aches and pains,
loose change escaping skinny jeans,
breaking news and vehicles radioed to rescue
tapping feet, clapping hands, and snapping fingers
wet and unfed babies,
hustlers and busters,
please hear me out
over the world……..
