... The page bursts forth with rhymes or lines to nurture minds ... I chase cadence, rhythm and line breaks that sculpt vision and wisdom ... I chase the beauty and bliss of prayer and nothing compares to the reciprocity there ...

Surah Al Nisa (The Women) Chapter 4:34 ...

Men are the support of women as God gives some more means than others, and because they spend of their wealth (to provide for them). So women who are virtuous are obedient to God and guard the hidden as God has guarded it. As for women you feel are averse, talk to them suasively; then leave them alone in bed (without molesting them) and go to bed with them (when they are willing).

In Honor of … By Saul Williams ...

(Black History Month Children's Poems)

I asked her
to clean up
her room.

She said,
“I’m not a slave.”

“Nuh, duh,” I said
“cause if you were
with that attitude
you’d be dead.”

“No. I would be
like Harriet Tubman
or Sojourner Truth.
And in honor of
Black History Month
I won’t clean up my room!”

“In honor of the maids
who worked long hours
for little pay, who cleaned
and cleaned, and cleaned
and cleaned …
I won’t clean up today!”

“Well, you do know your history”
I said. “Girl, you make me proud

And in honor of your mixed ancestry
you should clean the house.”
When your rage is choking you, it is best to say nothing
(Octavia E. Butler)
When no influence is strong enough to unify people, they divide...
They struggle, one against one, group against group...
