modern bells of the newest age.
herald the trumpet’s call.
in every heart
painted multi-hued palette
glimmering, glowing, crowned prestige
morning sun in Harlem historic hipness
Georgia peach trees, academic halls
pearled glistening Caribbean aqua waters
Chicago steely workboots
railroads _+_+_+_+_ John Henry _+_+_+
California’s orange groves, home from the war to bungalows of desires
proving over and over and over
untinged ebony grace
of the turning tide.
An unstoppable tsunami
climbing all the way
