    fresh,
    fruitful, frivolous,
    and framing
    alliterations
    accompany as
    the children smile with
    no teeth, but only
    mouths filled
    to the brim
    with our
    black aberrations…
    and who will
    salvage our nation?

    who
    will salvage
    us…when
    we no longer
    speak in harmony…
    u flow in Yoruba
    and i speak Lithuanian?

    i
    want intense
    copulation
    btwn our souls-
    mergin the
    dust of ur nile
    with the grass
    of my fertile crescent-
    crescent
    present in ur
    cavern where i
    regurgitate many waters…that
    quietly murmur
    ur
    name from mountains to
    valleys.

    when
    will we salvage
    each other
    graduatin’
    to reclaimin’ and
    re-buildin’ the potentcy
    of nations…
    diggin ditches that leave the etched
    taste of your inner thighs; drippin
    life across my warm, stark
    soul?

    dig
    wooden nails,
    ancient and stained with
    the after-birth of
    creation across
    my womb/
    and
    infect me with life…
    infect me with
    infant faith in humanity
    that will mature
    into full-grown
    love…

    who…
    when…
    will salvage
    the remnant of
    affectionate glints
    that used to embed ur
    eyes when we
    looked at we?
    who…
    when…
    will salvage the
    tears and laughter i
    bottled up and
    hoarded between
    my greedy pores
    for future engagin’
    who…
    when…
    will salvage
    our natural
    affection
    leadin’
    to the nations?

    "Infect me with life, Infect me with infant faith in humanity." Wow, that line is very powerful, you truly have a way with words and imagery, loved it.

    Agreeing with Phenomenon, you do have a way with words and imagery, like an artist painting just the right hues. As diverse a people as we are, there must be some glue that unites us. Great work here.
