    Remembering Gwendolyn’s of
    (Gwendolyn Brooks 1917-2000)

    From within our formlessness you formed
    compressing gaseous us into your core
    the gravity of your soul drawing us into
    you like dust into a vacuum

    we warmed as you expanded into
    your beautiful self, enlightening each of
    inside us with a brilliance two thousand
    suns greater than our own

    into our blazing nature you fused
    control, elegance, and grace. you
    then, the selfless giant that you were,
    blew us back into our newly formed
    possible selves, like an anther releasing
    dandelion pollen into the winds

    now sweet mother, your physical brilliance
    has contracted,  leaving us to orbit about your
    soul as brown dwarfs ever in need of its blackbody

    but we fret not mother Gwen
    your away is not so far
    we’ll meet upon forever’s when
    and dance with you amongst the stars
