4 colored girls


Dark phrases of womanhood
Of never having been a girl

Half-note scattered without rhythm
Without rhythm
No tune distraught

Her laughter falling over
A black girl's shoulders

lt's funny
Funny
lt's hysterical
The melodylessness of her dance
Don't tell nobody
Don't tell a soul

She's dancing on beer cans and shingles
Beer cans and shingles

This must be the spook house
Another song with no singers
Lyrics, no voices
And uninterrupted solos

Unseen performances


Are we ghouls?
Children of horror?
Children of horror?

The joke?
Don't tell nobody, don't tell a soul

Are we animals?
Have we gone crazy?
Have we gone crazy?

l can't hear anything
But maddening screams
and the soft strains of death

And you promised me
You promised somebody, anybody

Sing a black girl's song
Sing a black girl's song

Bring her out to know herself
To know you

But sing her rhythms caring, struggle
Caring, struggle
Hard times sing her song of life

She's been dead so long
Closed in silence so long
ln silence so long

She doesn't know the sound
Of her own voice, her infinite beauty

She's half-notes scattered without rhythm
No tune

Sing her sighs
Sing the song of her possibilities

Sing a righteous gospel

Let her be born

Let her be bornn and handled warmly
Let her be bornn and handled warmly
