    6th grade

    I first read his
    Black poetry
    So eloquently
    He rhymed
    About
    Boycotting buses
    In Montgomery

    His tongue spelled
    Civil disobedience
    Like Ghandi

    And I
    Obeyed
    The letters
    From a Birmingham Jail

    6th grade

    Never knew
    Skin color
    Could summon
    D-cells

    And

    Poetic
    Prophetic
    Legacies
    Of black
    Piercing eyes
    In search of

    6th grade

    Me
    Reading him
    Him reading
    Me
    History

    Memorial

    To a black man
    Still standing
    On the edge

    Of eternity


    [because there can never be enough poems about MLK]
