Soul Food Visual Poem - Bowl

 

Excerpt:  ...Bowls and bowls of slow cooked red beans

Black-eyed peas and butter beans 

Fat back seasoned cabbage, mustard and collard greens 

Pickled pigs feet, crispy fried cracklings

And hog head cheese, all, protein

Chitterlings, ham hocks, neck bones

Hog mauls, Hoppin' John   

Everyday meals or goings-on

They are always flavorsome, cultural bonbons

Stolen Dignity Visual Poem - Tall Drum on Stand

 

 

African drums

Fading, fading into the night

Innocent souls, were snatched, outright

Souls were wickedly shackled and yoked

Darkening that freedom's light

All were crammed into ships, close and tight

Bound for far, far lands; out of sight...
