An Avalanche Of Your Love (James Leland Ludeau Lafayette, LA)

Beneath an avalanche of your love
I lay
Excavated Like a fossil
From a period without love
Time tried to carve out my story
But you changed it all
Dug up what was left of me
And you saved me
Now I have breath I have strength to stand
And you inspire me
Your love is a match for my soul
Igniting the fuel of my love
And when this existence leaves me numb
And I want to run
Away from the tundra you carry me
Like an ash to the wind
You scatter me
And I'll never be the same
Forever changed

            Poet's Cry for Mike Tidewell (Barry Sons - Berwick, LA)

            I heard the Politician say in a hunter’s whisper, “There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today. He was crying about the marshland’s accelerated decay.”
            “Mr. Politician, can you help us anyway? I refuse to think our marsh is so quickly Going away. If we can scan the galaxy And bring men back from the dead, Why can’t we save our marsh? I can’t Get that around my head.”
            There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today. Whining and crying; Who needs them anyway?” “Mr. Politician, I’m here to make you feel. Try to wrap your heart around the things that Are real. Like love and friendship passion and Sorrow; the love of earth and concern for tomorrow.”
            “There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today."

            This Little White Boy Who Wanted Some Nigger In Him (James Leland Ludeau III - Lafayette, LA)

            Grew up on a plantation
            Secluded from the world
            I knew classes but didn’t understand race
            Because what raced through my veins wasn’t something of which I could ever speak
            My father could fuck the slave girls
            But I couldn’t touch the men
            It filled me with resentment
            Fueled my resentment with lust
            Until it was too much to take
            It was a small contained community
            White as the cotton in the fields
            Only dark around the edges where the black men lived
            Ploughing the fields
            I’d imagine them ploughing me
            Glistening with sweat as the sun bathed their shoulders
            The sweat running down until it pooled around the waistband of their thin cotton pants
            Their skin
            Black, almost indigo, like night
            Some like coffee with milk in it
            Cafe au lait
            I could smell their musk
            Watched as their muscly bodies worked
            I yearned
            This little white boy who wanted some nigger in him
            To fall beneath the weight of one
            As he heaved
            As he forced his throbbing cock into my crevice
            I longed for even the pa…
