    Creation (from my early dayz)

    8/15/00
    8:51am

    When a poet dreams
    A poet un-bleeds
    A poet screams
    And when touched---
    A poet redeems---re-springs
    When a poet sleeps,
    She’s back in the womb
    Every night
    Being re-procreated with the new day
    Generated into her DNA
    And sometimes
    It may seem as if
    It’s taking her forever to bloom
    Non-poets may actually think
    She’s gone to the tomb
    Because her iii’s are closed
    They assume
    She’s shaking hands with Mr. Gloom
    In his abyss
    But I beg to differ
    Because I’m an I witness myself
    Of this so-called creative near death experience
    It’s a twist
    Of a million worlds in one
    Rhythms-rhymes
    Lyrics-lines
    Symbols-spaces
    Hidden in places
    Deep within this sleep
    And when a poet sleeps
    She’s back in the womb
    Every time, every night…
    Every night…
