Poetry Friday

It's Langston Hughes's birthday month.
I personally always liked his boogie and jazzy poems so...


Langston Hughes

Down in the bass
That steady beat
Walking walking walking
Like marching feet.

Down in the bass
They easy roll,
Rolling like I like it
In my soul.

Riffs, smears, breaks.

Hey, Lawdy Mama!
Do you hear what I said?
Easy like I rock it
In my bed!
