    Black Orpheus,
    My name and birth-right,
    black man first; musician of light.
    Black Orpheus,
    High Priest of the sung word,
    distinctive and preferred.
    Man of myth and legends
    wrapped in the trappings of
    temporal mortality;
    I speak of a reality where divinity and
    morality can exist,
    and love and complete compassion
    dip deep past the surface mist.
    I am kissed,
    by the breath of God, and
    endowed with written and sung prophesies
    of distant and almost forgotten centuries.
    Black Orpheus the new-generation Lucifer.
    An empty vessel of the Father, I succeed and sometimes
    suffer, but my flame will burn eternal,
    dodging the jealosies and hatred of the dethroned,
    candle-snuffer.
    Call me Black Orpheus, please.
    As antidiluvian as I am contemporary,
    Simple yet complex like a flying dream
    inside an ebony mystery.
    In my sea of individuality,
    the siren's sing background to my earthy solo
    of artistic creations and intellectual stimulations,
    accompanied by piccolo.
    Black Orpheus,
    ebony to chestnut
    honey to midnight,
    I fight with music, intellect and the power of
    divine light.
    Words of life, like rivers of liquid sweetness,
    flow from my lips and falls to my lap.
    Turn on the stars and turn off the tap,
    Dusk burnishes and the melody leaves a gap.
    Black Orpheus,
    musical entity, son of Earth and rhyme.
    Husband to God and free-spirit in time.

    Black Orpheus
