Takin a solo / a poetic possibility / a poetic imperative
Wow ... yr just like a man!
I talk to myself
It's happenin / but you don't know abt it
Where the mississippi meets the amazon
Lovin you is ecstasy to me
This woman thinks we're de beauvoir & jean-paul
Several propositions in the middle of the nite
Lotsa body & cultural heritage
Hands & holding
& then
Night letter #3
Get it & feel good
Senses of heritage
Just as the del vikings stole my heart
I'm not very communicative
I had five nose rings
Frank Albert & viola benzena owens
The old men
An ol fashion lady
In honor of yr poise in the face of hungry lions
Expiriese girl wanted
Telephones & other false gods
Who am I thinkin of
Latin night is Monday
Fame on all fours
Nappy edges
Resurrection of the daughter
For all my dead & loved ones
Who is setting these priorities?
On becomin successful
De poems gotta come outta my crotch?
No gusts of wind tickle me
Between a dancer & a poet
Serious lessons learned
For marian
With no immediate cause
The suspect is black & in his early 20's
Oakland in february
& she bleeds
I live in music
Tropical dance
Elegance in the extreme
One more poem for dolphy
Cross oceans into my heart
My father is a retired magician
Chicago in sanfrancisco & you
Marine intrusion
An invitation to my friends
