Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
A Kwansaba for Mother Richie
Lika a comfort, Mother Richie spread out
Across Her Century, a prayer-carpet riding
The backs of storms down decades of
Turmoil & joy, down roads of Willing-Work,
Cousin-heart to Haves & Have-Nots,
Noons & moons, birthin'legions & legends
By the candle-light of s/heroic example.
