    intercession #1 (4rmtheSpirit)




    i have watched you blak boi
    i have watched you
    drown urself in the bleak waters
    of deprivation.
    u have given yourself away randomly for years
    until there’s nothing left for u.


    i have watched you blak boi
    i have smelled your uncried tears, smelled your
    inner fears…i have heard him speak fear to you
    speaking in angled whispers that never quite
    reached our ears…i have been present
    during your internal bleedings…i have dressed
    the wounds he caused with your
    redundant acts of sexual flailings.


    i have seen ur repeated acts
    of unnecessary copulation with strange faces
    i have seen and felt the rough hands of familiar spirits
    masked behind wide chests, deep voices and magnetic
    eyes…i have watched you peddle your freedom
    like late night whores on the corner of 5th
    and Lexington ave.


    when would it have been enough?
    when would you have tasted the coffee brown
    tears of a wailing earth bemoaning your every sexual adventure?
    i have watched you lie in bed, lonely and scared…i
    have seen, i said i have seen your hands stained with the
    raw scent of masturbation’s love; i have tasted the
    quickness of your speed to the church-house seeking
    deliverance, hating yourself, wanting to stop but not wanting to stop.


    what happened to your song blak boi?
    what happened to your voice lifted up in individual freedom?
    the caged bird returned to sistah angelou’s home and died…there
    has been no caged bird singing…you haven’t lifted your voice to sing.

    i have watched
    i have seen
    i have smelled
    i have touched the pregnant swollenness of your being,
    pregnant with the soul-tie/spirit of every man
    you’ve ever slept with…i have touched and i
    have cried…
    i cry for you blak boi…i cry for your pain…
    i cry for your ignorance, i cry for your rebellion and stubbornness…
    i cry…i take up lamentations for the death in portions of
    your being…i wail and pray that you’ll hear…


    i have sung you black boi
    i have sung
    you near the throne…i have
    filled heaven with the song of your pain…
    i have mingled the pain of the Father with your pain…
    i have intertwined the heart-pulse of his desire for you
    to birth freedom…taste freedom…live freedom
    with your cries to be free.
    i have sung you blak boi…i have
    sung you…i sing loudly of both the Divine’s pain and yours
    in the hopes you’ll hear and respond to
    his song…


    how long blak boi…
    how long will ur ears be full of your
    own dissonant melody…
    never fulfilling, never completing…always
    tense, tight and full of tumult?
    how long blak soul…
    how long will you opt to sing the aria of bondage
    instead of arpeggiating liberty…
    how long my son…
    how long…

    We sometimes think that change is scarier that chains. The angst in this piece was intense poet. Welcome back, I have missed your potent pen.
