SLAVE THEATER

Vol Two – Slave Theater: Poems – release date Friday, May 31, 2019
Washed off his vampire kisses.
Took his name off my skin;
and was again a garden though
he still peeked through the gate.
There was no door for him to enter.
This garden is no man’s cemetery to lie around
and drink their fill.

The Dead are seeking Life. This collection of Gnostic poems deals with mythical and spiritual themes. These poems are the inner voices rising to take center stage in our psyche and coping with the frustrations of colonization not only physically but mentally. These poems are the lament of a soul awakening to flesh time imprisonment; spiritual and shamanistic experiences, sexual mindsets, being black, gay and conditioned to maintain a slave mentality.

These poems are not for
colonization nor to be culturally lassoed
or have makeshift nooses to wear
or to terminate underground poems
whose voices initiate the cocooning
from the corrupting errors
seeking occupation within individuality.
This autobiographical voice is
not tethered to occupied lands / bodies.
I will lead my poems from
the gold fixation and from
the plague infested colonizers
who uses their shadows as wardens.

Slave Theater is the second volume in The Harbinger Poetry Series, a nine book series about the dark night of the soul escaping colonization physically and mentally. The battle for the soul is never ending.
