    I want you to stay

    Stay and write millenium tribes
    And make plain the complicated steps of our ancestors,
    Write barefeet and callouses on underground trails
    Write urban riots, marches, prisons and nations

    Then...GO

    Go to wind and water
    And tell them why you have come
    Tell them the myths of sand and stone
    Tell them that you are the chosen one
    To bring the elements
    To the elders

    Then....COME

    Come back home
    Come wearing eastern silks,
    And garments with golden threads sewn,
    Come bearing egg plant, sugar cane,
    Lichees and bread fruit
    Come like hurricane seasoned with guava jelly,
    Sweet milk and tofu
    Come feed us your rain and let us taste you

    Then...KNOW

    Know your skin, know the position of your mother's birthing
    Know the sound of your father's un-becoming
    Know your peace..know your pain
    Know fall….know morning
    Know ocean floor and your reasons for returning

    Then.....STAY

    Then.....GO

    Then.....COME

    Then.....KNOW

    That you are poetry...Standing poised and beauty
    Amongst blind men..... and deaf children


    [Reading you has been my soul's treasure..thank you for the jewels]

    'Most Welcome'.....Romus

    I read your 'JOY' and I thought...what is he doing here? He belongs next to Sanchez, Baraka, Joans & Hughes...I wanted you to run away...to go chase the sun...but I wanted you to stay here too...so that I could continue to read you at my own selfish convenience...

    So "STAY-GO-COME-KNOW"

    and "hurry-go-bring-come" more poems
