• This dream

    This dream has tendrils

    A dazzle and razzle
    To wrangle and strangle
    This dream has rhythm
    Boom and bass and beats
    Without retreat, just receipts
    This dream has muscle
    To rumble and pummel
    Hustle and tackle
    This dream floats
    Like a butterfly, stings like votes
    Like Bird plays notes
    Like Hurston wrote
    This dream climbs rhyme
    Like hope shines
    Like justice blinds
    Like freedom chimes
    Like promises mark time
