​A NEW OPENING


As hands of dawn open the rest cage

Do consider this queer adage

That hands won’t feed if there be no work

And like the wisest version of Ananse

Build us into a harvesting web


II

We are hens

In worldly dens

We are cocks

Between some rocks

We are comfortable tourists

Who are blessed with blindfolds

So do build us into a comfort web


III

As a mother feeds her young

Let every rock

Bring us stock

Let every gravel

Help us more unravel

Let every deed of a dove

Bring us more love

As we roam like fowls

Into the coop of another darkness
