Picture stained, pasted pastels array the block,
Peering through picture frames hiding on top.
History in 2D definition. Baptist churches and Black oppression.
While concrete angels hover over bodies in streets below.
Light poles and buildings without alleys. Colors without
All things hidden and exposed. There is no rose in the sidewalk.
Newspaper pages give rise to new forms.
Barber shops and fornication, here there is some definition.
John Coltrone on the Sax, jamming over
Caskets carried covertly, onlookers Watching intently.
Keep the children on the grass and make them
Look over their backs. They live in pasted houses.
