An ode a day for May 2014 - day 31 - To V Kali

Will you say my name the way you say names
You know the way
Will you put your perfect lips together and throw my name to God
So that God will know for sure that I am loved by one like you
With all that memory in the crust of your elbows
You think I don't feel all that in your hugs
You think you can hide all that magic
You cannot friendmother
You cannot

These words are for you
For the ways you bless us with red
With purple with sky with green
You so rainbow
You so river
You so all them books
You so all that hair down to your back
You so Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
With silver buttons buttons buttons

You so poet

Did we thank you
For all the times you remind us to breathe
Did we thank you
For tofu taste just like catfish save our lives
Did we thank you
For juice like Jesus feet
For water turn gutter into Arrowhead
Did we thank you

These words are for you
