Our own Kwami Jackson was recently featured in “West End Poetry” with the following poem…
Made for you
As you turn it on it brushes against the flesh
Then falls into creeks and streams
Put it in a cup as it ravels down the throats many
Where? Ashes spread, guns are thrown, and decomposed bodies float aside.
Thrown garbage in the sea lies here
Where piers are guilt for you and me
A mother in a unexpected place. Water breaks!
As drops of rain falls for growth.
It is most of the body. Human, mammal or animal.
At times it can be frozen
Materials were made to repel because of it.
Some beds have it
You could not clean dishes without it.
Nothings can live without it
You brush your teeth and wash your face and then turn off the water.
Robert Kwami Jackson
Kwami is also featured in this month’s documentary movie,“
