Besides the obvious technological and architectural advances, only one thing has really changed between our generations:
We now live in an America where blacks are not only allowed the right to vote but can become the Redeemer President of the United States
Otherwise, we still live in an America where the audacity to openly enjoy the pleasures of sex and being respected for wisdom are contradictions without reconciliation
We still live in an America where the economy collapses while the masses are consumed with preventing the rights of anyone with a fancy for anything out of the ordinary
We still live in an America where rotting leaves, tufts of straw, and debris are found in more homes than poetry books
We still live in an America where Christ and Dracula provide both excitement and fear for restless lives longing for a simple touch
We still live in an America where the impact of urbanization reaches out to the common person more than the obscene nature of poetry
We still live in an America where writing about prostitution is considered trashy and profane
We still live in an America where poets have to work while publishing to survive financial difficulty unless they are fashioned like Shakespeare
We still live in an America where, unless you belong to a church, you are a religious skeptic believing in nothing
We still live in an America where overt sexuality, siding with the barnburners, and authoring disreputable books limit poets to a vagabond lifestyle
We still live in an America where breaking tradition and the boundaries of poetic form are considered the trademarks of a pretentious ass
We still live in an America where everything from thieves to dwarfs to fog to beetles deserve validity
We still live in an America where books cannot prevent war and the sick and wounded need healing
We still live in an America where not everyone can appreciate the beauty of immigration, crowded streets, brutal differences, urban affection
We still live in an America where the same sun that once invigorated your passion continues to provide us with the beauty of life worth fighting for
We still live in an America where America still lives in us
Voices and Soul appears on Black Kos Tuesday's Chile; poetry chosen and critiqued by Black Kos Poetry Editor Justice Putnam.
Question: Who is your audience? What are you here for?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Answer: Tribal Alliances, Heart-felt Convictions, Passionate Reason, Random Abandon, Sustainable Civility and a kiss; to comfort the sad and the mad Ones; the Ones roaming the International section of the American Supermarket at night; or roaming the neglected streets looking for an angry malaprop to sink their teeth into; the Ones who seek without seeking and learn as much as they teach; the Ones who embrace and kiss and embrace again; the Ones who sing the song of the city and the ballads of the forest; the Ones who chant the rhythm of the sea and hum the melody of the desert; the Ones who sing the prayer of Her name and Her name is the World. Yes, those are the Ones. -- JP
(Can you help folks in need heat their homes and cook their food on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations. Navajo has an important diary posted with all the particulars. Even a small amount can work towards building the minimum.
Could you please help?)
So that explains it... !
