    In a Smoky Club


    In a smoky club, called the Red Stage,
    I slouch in a corner,
    And watch the red lights play double-dutch on your wild dreds.
    Watch the contortions of your face
    As you let your emotions flow
    In the form of Langston's occupation.
    Feeling the pain of past bodies and bodies to come
    Swaying on the red stage.
    Letting go and letting the world know the way that things come around.

    Slowly you lift your shaggy head
    As if all life force has flown with your poem.
    Smoky eyes lock with mine
    As you rasp into the mic
    "And that's the way it comes around."
    In a smoky club, slouched in a corner,
    I look into your eyes
    And snap my fingers.
