Pushing Daisies

Try to welcome

The beginning and end of America:

She traipses, nascent and shrouded,

In sheer, naked cloth.

/

Indelible blood stains, red striped —

Out damned spot —

Soak in cold.

/

Stars, not spangled,

But bursting, instruct

Us to follow the drinking gourd

Away and home.

/

Blue like black bodies

Swims eel-like and slithering

In the river where we were drowned.

/

Demeter, bring drought to this forsaken land,

For we do not deserve a bountiful harvest;

Kore, raise up our waterlogged souls,

Your flowers from the underworld.

South Side Diaspora

We hang

From the looped coffles

Dangling from the roof of the bus;

The cuffs’ metal jangles

Clank harmoniously in tandem,

Feet shuffle a rat a tat

As empty fingers fumble for a baseline

That isn’t there;

/

Our bodies, compact

With other black bodies,

Adrift, on course to the Loop

Where we disperse into black diaspora

Of the North and West.

/

A woman bites, crisp, an apple,

As the man next to her snivels and spits

Out the open window —

It catches on the glass;

We watch its web stretch with the wind.

/

This is our freedom:

The crash of teeth

Against raw skin;

The puckered promise

Of a hocked loogie.

/

Do you hear Kendrick

Bellowing from inside

That there boy’s headphones?

/

Stuck inside the belly of the beast!

Can you please pray for me?

/

This metal whale grinds and screeches

It bellows and groans as we tickle his ribs with our feet.

We are Jonah, plunged into darkness;

We are Tashtego, drowning;

We are swelling, sweltering strange fruit ripening

Among the spit-capillaries that line the windows.

/

A flood is coming,

Noah,

Load this, our ark, with bodies

He has not yet marveled at —

Forsaken, we are

Forsaken.

/

Get God on the phone!

Said it won’t be long —

/

He said,

/

Seven days from now

I will send rain on the earth

For forty days and forty nights,

And I will wipe from the face of the earth

Every living creature I have made.

/

Are we the children of the saved?

Or the bodies yet to be washed away?

Shall the lake turn black

As our water-logged skin?

Vigilante Africano steers silently,

Docking lakeside,

Northside —

Thirty-nine dead, upon arrival.

Where will the lake start

And the South Side end?

We sit, awaiting a judgment that will not come.
