Description: (For Jacob Lawrence) In un-electrified darkness What is not visible is an ear to the wind Hear leaves shift beneath the weight of deet or boar Hear sad shouting of white men drunk Or back-fire from a 32 or 38 Ford White men with power - hold dear Your house, your profits, your debt grows - good years and bad Their accounts so carefully writ In a place where light makes no difference To when or where violation brings another Black body to the funeral parlor Hear widows crying, see the side saddle grin Of men careless with other people's lives Other people's property Hear a sharecropper counting the last coins left In his wife's old purse.
