The heat and humidity are already stifling
On this June morning,
And my skin is sticky,
And the mosquitoes are aggressive,
But I’m going to sit outside and listen to
A Love Supreme.
That’s the thing, isn’t it?
The ostrich is not native to this land.
Pull your head out.
A million truths
Are being spoken in every corner
Of the nation,
Listen to them all.
Hear them in your sleep.
They will give you better dreams.
