Sad news and loss…





Sekou Sundiata

1948 - 2007







I could wake up in the morning
without a warning
and my world could change:
blink you eyes.
All depends, all depends on the skin,
all depends on the skin you're living in

             – from “Blink Your Eyes”

I LOVE that poem. That line, "It all depends..." is so haunting. He was a force.

What I love about your "ten thousand things."

You mourn poets I haven't even heard of.

Thanks to all for the visit. Sundiata's work is strong and real. He will be missed.
