about

Step into the sounds of a Rainforest and other world...
Hear the bullfrogs and crickets ;)
You're in for quite a journey...
I wrote this while waiting for a train at Grand Central a few years ago

lyrics

Bronzed-Back Warriors (Children of the Sun)

Bronzed-Back Warriors:
Children of the Sun:

I’m writing this

To see what’s there… 

To see where I can place my palms…

I’m back-boning off the last layer
Peeling through the cocoon
that births butterflies into a silk sky.

I found the underworld under your shadow
And I couldn’t see
so I walked blindfolded into the sun
Prostrate to the truth…


And it colored me with a bronze shimmer
Warrioring my way through its rays…


This new air tastes of green herbal remedies
Ivy vines grown for hair to climb through…


We are children of the sun…
Eyes squinting into Her rays 

To remember who we are 

Refracting back Her face…


We are each others’

Altered tonal arrangements;
Shading on and off memories.

Sometimes I took on your skin tone
and forgot what I looked like
When I showed my image into the mirror.
So I smeared your face off me
and saw myself for the first time.


We are pieces of the earth
pieced back together again…

I am writing this to see what’s there...
I’m writing this because
I found a placement in my heart
that felt like home…

And my people have placed a need in me
To talk to you with no mouth…


We are children bronzed by the sun
And Albino’d by the moon
Bronzed-back warriors…
We are preparing for a new world
Echoed by Her womb
