The next teardrop I drop will be lost in the ocean of tears. Crashing on the shore as the world sentimenally presents itself in epiphany.

PART 2 - the voice of history pitchsifted

The shape of history held . . . . Suppression and Oppression have always been enmeshed in an unorganised and disprorportionate way. I don’t relate to storytellers who speak of history solely as a phallic object crushing its way through the rock of time.

In the high lands, where thunder struck midnight at the turn of spring Ma, I am consoled since I must’ve been there with you When it was just us Bonded at the umbilical Emancipated and awakened Bearing beauty into a world of petrified third eyes Who see no colour, only form to a dead-end street, at the end of conquest Ma, Sense your heat against my skin Sing our song Of how for the black body, the classic canon leads to heartbreak Pen and paper in wrong hands draw then execute the hangman Ma, sing our song About the people’s right to be seen Jewel liquid rock, cooled from the belly of Mother Earth Ma, Ma, In song My first dreams sang of how the black baby boy is the answer to life’s question mark, with a question. Not a response. Only reflection. Space and root notes. Drums. Ululation, and you Ma, singing our Song
