INSEPARABLE in 3 Parts – For Imamu Amiri Baraka

(1)

In the beginning

He was called LeRoi Jones

3 syllables, Le—Roi—Jones

The 1st triangle of sound/music

Standing up – strong

Pointed with a broad base

The first side of the Black African Pyramid

(2)

Imamu Amiri Baraka

Each name with three syllables

No coincidence – it makes perfect sense

The ringing symphony of 3

Completing

All the triangular sides of the Black African Pyramid

Standing FOREVER

A Testament of Higher Intelligence

Imamu Amiri Baraka, through his large heart and large eyes

Provides piercing streams of light and colorful analytical insight for us to see

His spiritual teachings will resonate through eternity

(3)

Like Malcolm, Monk, Parker, Max and Miles

Like, Amina, King, Kwame, and Sojourner Truth

Like Hughes, Ellington, Douglass, Baldwin, Cabral and Robert F. Williams

And countless spiritual warriors – LIBERATORS of TRUTH,

He BATTLED the REAL DEVIL

Wielding his Mighty SWORDS of Musical Words

Imamu Amiri Baraka constantly changed – over time

Like our ESTEEMED MIGHTY ANCESTORS,

Revolutionary growth first occurred within the SELF

Then he began to change the world

Making it a better place

This Spiritual Warrior-Prince brought forth more clarity

Making his listeners/readers perceptions more refined

Living the fact – that ART, MUSIC, LITERATURE, POLITICS, LIFE/REBIRTH and STRUGGLE

Are inseparable, they’re intertwined,

Inseparable
