These Poems : June Jordan

These poems
they are things that I do
in the dark
reaching for you
whoever you are
and
are you ready?

These words
they are stones in the water
running away
 
These skeletal lines
they are desperate arms for my longing and love.

I am a stranger
learning to worship the strangers
around me
 
whoever you are
whoever I may become.
~ June Jordan (1936-2002)
