Tweet Street

It is the other

in your brother

that makes the hood interesting.


Spices from the window,

music in the air,

all the names of God in dialects.


What the missing fathers miss

we are to fill in spades,

holy hearts flashing prosperous I.D.s.


Suffer the little children

doesn’t mean be mean.

Ask any mother how.


Walk a mile, search

door to door,

orphans, of all ages, want you home.
