(a poem in loving memory of the
pioneering Black actress)
(a poem in memory of the pioneering
When you die...come back to life
So we can laugh and cry and curse the living!
O! I want to curse anything.
Drab concrete sky leaving me with too many songs
Sadness leaves, because I forget the words.
The words are so many, I just wrinkle
up and laugh and squeeze my hurting hands.
I remember being young and frisky.
I remember being a creamy hot thing.
I remember the lemony days and hasty dreamy nights
that snuck away with the words.
The one song I remember, the one I loved
"when you die...come back to life."
TAKEN from the book "Nile River Woman"
--the very first poems by Kola Boof (Atlantic Library).
