    i am a boneshaker in search of satisfaction
    female haley
    this new bruise comes through
    when ancestors keep calling
    and flesh just didn't fuse the way white hot tearing
    had expected

    this ignites then self destructs like slow burning coals
    ready to implode a blaze

    what is the body?

    once it has groves
    cells that make matter-matter more
    when your jail is your skin
    and you skin is your home

    shake-shake

    i am running calling to the southern creole blood
    in the plush of grounds- get up
    its time to restitute roots

    the strictures of this narrative breaks my skin
    reckless working days were bionic woman
    is crushed on costly days and chains still speak
    quietly...don't forget me

    and i can't
    cos their odyssey still lingers victim, flinching
    defiant by gravity
    chopped open

    i had a conversation with america
    told her to release ole souls still trapped in her green
    told her to cut down branches that harbor canned fruit,

    strange?

    still dangling from its vines
    -burn it as libation for my ancestors

    i see lines about to explode
    there goes promises yet unkept
    unpaid labors for told-spoken suffering, binded under arm pits
    my skin is calling for blood, scrapped
    my hair is calling for that 1865 field order
    40 acres and a mule...

    the survivors of Maafa
    are under attack, snatch back
    the 20,000 per person for Japanese-Americans got
    sow it in the fields so my babies have roots connected under their toe-nails
    snatch back the won reparations
    and heal my people
    so let it be done and decorated

    we want education
    we want healthcare
    we want/we need

    healing

    we want communities restored
    rehabilitation for our men

    we want/we need

    America hear your past...

    its calling bluesy, like my spirit
    i am restless for your answer…
