I read some poetry the other day. Here was one of them, it was the first time in a while, and i wanted to share what that was and what it looked like. This was from the deep Southside of Chicago.
69. Ode to Ocean Blue…
Listen to Marvin Gaye a lot,
Purse the folds of your skin between the eyes
And channel wide open mouthed, onto a bed of keys
Have the ebony and ivory drip with the darkest tears
Ask for forgiveness, in twenty thousand languages
And swim across that ocean of sorrow
Flipping back arms like flippers and fins
Whilst thy scales shimmer – blue.
