    I can feel the rhythm of the deep South and the banjo blues of the wonderful lyrics.

    I am happy to come across your works dear poet.Your words comes out straight from the life you lived. My sincere tribute to you.

He Sees Through Stone

He sees through stone
he has the secret
eyes this old black one
who under prison skies
sits pressed by the sun
against the western wall
his pipe between purple gums

the years fall
