Poem: old man



For Susan Robeson


Old man

defiant river

tote that barge

Mississ ippi

and though I’m

lift that bale

show some grit

Paul Robeson

big man

big smile


and you land in

Paul Robeson

blacklist


but the words

in Turkish

and though I’m dyin

Robeson


Bengali

Hikmet

freedom

Biswas


sing on
