On Watching Chasing Trane



The first time

The first time

The very first time


& God knows not the last time


I had a hard time to forgive my race was

The Birmingham Church bombing

That took the life of 4 young girls


I don’t think I have forgiven my race.


And the bodies keep piling up

In the name of a white man

In the name of a white God

In the name of a white dollar
