April Is National Poetry Month!


April Is National Poetry Month!

Today I shine the spotlight on a revolutionary brother, a poet, a playwright, a pivotal figure in “BAM,” an essayist, and a scholar. The One and Only Marvin X!

SOUL IS
MARVIN X

“A Love Supreme.”
Our fight for that
Long deferred dream
Motherfucker
The essence of
My being- My blackness
Bloods shooting crap in
the alley darkness
Fillmore
Laughing instead
of crying
Fuck you
Ray Charles singing
“Georgia On My Mind.”
Paul Robeson's Othello,
Soul Sublime
Kiss my ass
