Resurrection

What if Nat Turner’s Rebellion had succeeded. Maybe he would


Have birthed a trend, the way protests now bloom viral following black


Bodies are rendered fallow. Would people still root for a Nat


Who craved additional sumptuous fare; to exist without charge sweet inside his mind


Like cane-cum-refined sugar his hands on one occasion cultivated,


Or the way a cotton shirt reminded his fingers of the pluck


Of white bolls he hated. Today’s revolt, to be brave enough a knee


In a nape where it’s summarily planted or slow a bullet’s trajectory,


John Woo-style, earlier to it landed. These thoughts rise up


Like discontent-lined hymns to shorten bondage, planter eulogies


Sown, hoed, with every one other accompanied by flowering amid sonorous darkness.


A deep affection of jesus grew Nat’s bravery skyward inside lofty sway


From bondage to freedom. To wit, one has to reap carefully


To glean the long-buried dead. Dismay mourns


The insurrections of the past while fearing


The sharp uprising never completely going down while planned.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
