The Street

The religious holidays
are done
the calendar is clear
for summer fun
Hill District credit union line
Brotha with a stand
incense
body oils
black soap
something about the drum
lift up folk
make ‘em dance
when the spirit be numb
he’s the one playing
the skins
and smudging
the sage for
cleanse and hope
when
a CRV pulls up
to look for dope
frying fish and the pig
across the way
mix with Reggae
street musicians
auditions for a gig
with pay
music booms in the
street
Brothers preach
dressed neat
damn my people are fine
