 Black Poetry
    look
   this music has forms has always had
   forms
   and had you and itself to decide
   more than who it was singing to
   look some of you
   need the words
   and some the music
   and the new day will need will have
   the continuous line look
   see there something has
   been said about time
   and here the point
   something about the non
   or dubious part of it which we
   take now deciding which to be
   and look here
   don't you know black people always thought
   we 1 were 2 continuous in any form 3
