Negro League BaseballPaperback - 2011
From "Negro League Baseball":
Mother and Father and other frank nouns flow between freedoms in this stream of conscious dispersal. Rather than say they are musical say: They are music.
I mean we say we mean it
because it feels nice to mean
anything-- it feels childlike a newborn
lost in a beautiful cave on the way to
behavior--It feels and fields and home
and safe only saved, like a packet of foreign sugar
back pocket cafe good nigger swagger--wait.
