Until My Battle's Won (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette, LA)

drinking on pink champagne my campaign to be my own man begins covered in sins ticking like a bomb about to blow i'll show you what i'm about sooner rather than later serial dater blowing through men like they're nothing blushing to myself knowing i'm wrong singing my song so loud like a siren on the horizon an irritating sound in your ear i'm here to get drunk and cause a fight i might just get up in your face like mace and blind you rightfully mightfully earning my freedom kingdom come busting raps and standing for something bumping you out my way i'll do and say exactly what i want my jaunt is cause for alarm no harm i mean to deliver i shiver at the thought of being captured raptured with the idea of true freedom my season survival of the fittest you missed your chance to snatch my crown so bow down i'm not a rapper i'm an adapter if i wasn't the shit i'd quit delivering liquoring you until your drunk slam dunk i can't be stopped or clocked faster than speed quicker than light my might beyond your reason i'll season my life to my own taste won't waste time crying over your silliness a mess i was attracted to like flies to shit not one bit will i miss your arms your charms couldn't bring me down clown paint a smile on my face and move on i've grown too tired to give a fuck your luck run out about to take flight strike your ass like lightning frightening so quick with my words dropping turds for you to choke on gone from your grasp clasp your pearls and cry like a little bitch i'll switch it around on you chew through the leather straps your tied me up with a locksmith i'll get away live the way i see fit so quit trying to make me into someone i'm not my watt brighter than the sun i run until my battle's won

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

Grew up on a plantation
Removed
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
Sinewy
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
Burned
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…

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." Mr. Politician, I cry for America’s wetlands,

God Will Cry (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

This is your soul trying to connect to you for last the time. We have come to the final crossroad in our life. This is the end. These are our last earthly breaths.
From this abuse of yourself, we will both die. You will be a rotting corpse. I will fade away into Darkness. People may mourn your death, at first, but you will be forgotten, while I am left here molested by the hands of Hell.
God will cry, “My child didn’t fulfill her purpose.”
I’m begging you; don’t do this. It has been a slow ride, a slow descent to suicide.
