Dark redeemer
carrying legends of Sumatra, Arabia, Columbia

Creator of cultures
fuel for a Sufi’s whirling dance
drink of protests by patriots
in the days of revolution
drunk in heroic proportions
by Balzac and Beats
made mad by your power

Drunk black
by my father
on the troop ship
far side of the Pacific
World War Two
because green skin of slime congealed
on tins of curdled cream

The history
of why I drink you as a I do.

Maybe the best way to describe myself is to look at my books and other writing.
