As the depression approaches

we dance that rhythmic dance which, undulates

we dance in

time

we dancein

we existin

the oceans of residence time


Are we not the Rain drops that continue to sustain you

long after you have thrown us overboard

into the wake of

past and present

vast oceans and seas

the abyss


Yet we rise

we rise

Nimbus


We existin

we dancin

the oceans of residence time

that time is now

we are the now

the present

perfected


We are the visible invisible

we hang

on your breath

we hang

on your word

sophistry

you interrupt

disturb

contort

us


Yet

we rise

we rise


you deny us

justice

just is

just us

rights


we are the unseen seen

travellers who sojourn on the wind

the rain

the wake


We seek you out

Human waves across oceans and seas

We seek the lee


Departure


we dancin

we existin

the eye of storms

who serve as a reminder of

treachery

abandonment

theft

settlement

possession

capital


we see you

we feel you on the wind

we wash you with ourselves

we the incessant

rein over you

we disturb you

we interrupt you

you cry contemporary cries

for the loss of

lost


You assign us names

your names

labels

Gilbert

Katrina

Franklin

have no meaning

in the hope that we will pass and leave you unscathed

cower and seek solace in your names

not ours

just as before


Your defences cannot contain us

for we are free

free to be

free to exist in the now

We are here

because you were

there


We dancin

we existin

we movin

we bein

ubiquitous

omnipresent


We rise

The eternal rise


Landfall

Slavery is an ecological disaster

a disaster that falls upon the earth
