an acrostic for today

Light Mumbling in the Dark

Long into the disappearing
Apt is to fling arms wide ... it's like facing
Nobody except everyone, a new sun with cramped arms:
Going toward all spoke hard & clearer,
Sitting at the table with too as also here:
Too as much, insist at blues formed,
Over-simmer, boil to focus, flamed
Nada, gettin toward everything: sudden.

High up there; not crowned just
Uppermost into slaked maybe, like airs
Gashed open for breathing.
Heavy zip away from brokenly landgrab...
Every blink clench equity:
Sharp to focus now'd year: barter: shout.


Langston Hughes was born on February 1, 1902
