    I sit inside my mind sometimes
    waiting for the red light to change
    to make it beyond this writers block
    I have composed my mind of
    this block is of
    desolate buildings with no doors
    statuesque mouths with no voice
    iron wings on words
    and adjectives paralyzed from the
    neck down...this block exist in
    a stale stillness that suffocates
    my thoughts

    I sit inside my mind sometimes and
    sit at the red light refusing to look in
    my rear view mirror and look through
    the window that exist just
    behind me
    a window of another world where
    poetry is possible just by breathing
    where poetry is in everything

    mail deliveries and car accidents
    acts of chivalry and love incidents
    playing children and censored music from radios
    intolerant hatred and different types of stereos
    parks with no people and singing brooks
    days on the present side of midnight and revolutionary books
    From Frantz Fanon to George Jackson
    From growing grass to cement to play "jacks on"
    Hopscotch, skelly, double dutching girls
    stickball playing boys around the world
    not to mention the poetry in the stillness
    of sitting at a red light.
