    Black bird
    behind
    bulletproof
    glass

    allow me
    to introduce
    myself

    I am a poet
    not a rapper
    although I write
    good rhymes

    and the story of
    my life
    is an episode
    of good times

    *

    Black bird
    behind
    bulletproof
    glass

    I am a poet
    I am on the grind

    mashing these words
    to paper

    trying
    to make the ends
    meet

    trying
    to make the ****
    make sense

    *

    Black bird
    behind
    bulletproof
    glass

    I am a poet
    a champion
    of the human lexicon


    I am
    to poetry
    what
    Harriet Tubman was
    to slaves
    You see
    words are free spirits
    that you can’t take back

    that you can’t return
    once they are
    free

    *

    Black bird
    behind
    bulletproof
    glass

    you are to me
    like a word
    unspoken

    I am anxious
    to taste
    your name

    on my lips

    and release
    you upon the
    heavens

    this is
    a poet’s
    providence

    to poetry

    Harriet Tubman was
    to slaves
    You see
    words are free spirits
    that you can’t take back"
