Langston Hughes

Stream of Consciousness
Dedicated to: Langston Hughes


None other than the darker brother
Hughes, muse, fuse, use, abuse, lose
Ebony hands, homeless heart, wise soul, African eyes, wrinkled visage
Muted trumpet, tenor saxaphone, jazz piano, moaning blues
Cold nights, hot days, low lights
Urban loneliness, sex on Friday nights
Liquid movements lost in the downbeat
Truth laying low on the black street
Big mamas, young prostitute, shoeless child
Crooked smiles and firm handshakes
Apple pie, American lie, white faces, social graces
Cigarettes, alcohol, nightclub, Harlem
Jazz in the dark prophesized
Dreams dying, souls crying
Abandoned buildings, blood-shot eyes
Baby feet held in aged hands
Skin, bone, African undertones
Cold hearts, empty sighs
Hot breath, sweaty sheets, big thighs
Muddy water, cool rivers, the kiss of death
The fine line of time
Hughes of color
None other than the darker brother
My brother, my brother, my brother.
