Who has to say this is not my own definition of a renaissance?
I have seen the books, I watched the documentaries, the sun is rising
Reading Hughes while listening to Bentley, wishing I was kind of that cool.
Black faces gleam with expressive identities
Ancestors living through this new history.
Art, dancing, music everything
in awe of this tech kind of harlem renaissance.
I follow in shadows with immersed ideas and notions
History is creating now, concepts creatively expressed
My ideas that tend to fall flat, I love to follow.
Accounts of this time will need to be made.
