Leonard Dabydeen Poems
A Crow's Heart
Shadows move among them, amorphous like the wind
A Gifted World
As Tears Fall
As tears fall upon dehydrated cheeks making their own free rivulets without interference
This cool morning breeze keeps my heart beating with joy:
She creeps around my room lulling any sound whispering in the creak of my chair or the opening of a cabinet
An Uninvited Guest
AN UNINVITED GUEST Let me visit you today
Always On My Mind
Always From The East
Now the British comes to shore wet and tired from colonial gatherings he sits on the bench in the park smoking a cigar
It raged in mighty anger like a hungry cougar in motion leaping catapulting
Thunderous applause As the lightning strikes again: Rain rupturing earth.
The Color Of My Skin
I may bring to your attention this posted affirmation through the color of my skin: that I am what I am.
This fanfare must not be choreographed
How can you tell what the hunt looks like
Hide The Truth
Sometimes people hide the truth
by spreading a blanket of lies
like wool over your eyes
that love has no shame
if you let yourself be blunted
by naked deceit
