"I" Is the total black being spoken from the earth's inside.
There are many kinds of open.
How a diamond comes into a knot of flame.
How a sound comes into a word,
Coloured by who pays what for speaking.
Love is a word, another kind of open-
As a diamond comes into a knot of flame.
I am black because I come for the earth's inside.
Take my word for jewel in your open light."
Here I am with a few friends from my hometown at the iceskating rink over Christmas Break.
My roomate Francella Lewis and me at the bowling alley.
We figured since we spent so much time in the gutter,
we'd cheer ourselves up with a keepsake photo.
