    Free verse in multiple chapters
    Marching, scrolling, browsing freeeeeee in the midst of multiple confluences
    Like
    Free verse in the outskirts of limitations and subordination
    A free verse mentally free to internalize thoughts in a period of tyranny
    Free breath in the state of hypoxia
    Free emphasized in the Mau Mau movement
    Free like the souls of our ancestors that lay underneath the Atlantic Ocean
    Free verse like Ashe’ to the Pan-Afrikanism
    Free hydration in a state of volume depletion
    Like free calcium in the presence of brittle bones
    Like free calcium replenishing and uplifting, revitalizing fossils of Zulu
    Can you hear me now?”
    Fossils buried in the soil of Bahia
    Fossils in the sand of the Sahara dessert
    I mean fossils of Nzingha, Nerfertiti, Angela Davis, Diallo, George Washington Carver, and Harriet Tubman
    Free to interpret Medu Netcher
    Oldest form of writing in antiquity
    Free to commit a taboo
    As I became
    Free in his presence
    Free in our union
    Free verse in our thoughts
    As I intertwined locking with each locks
    I mean his cables to the universe
    Free to humble each others’s thoughts in silence
    Free to uplift the Namibian blood that runs thru me
    Free verse manifested in our third eye
    Free concentration to understand my kermatic tongue
    As I speak that language without words
    Free to reach out to Sankofa
    Like free to praise Allah
    Free to give praise to the creator
    Free to make scarifies to Shango, Olurun, Obatala
    Free to big up Haile Selassie as H.I.M in the Coptic times
    Free to behold with Buddha
    Free to nurture the essence of Womyn as the cradle of the universe
    Free verse in Afreeka
    Frrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
