James Baldwin the passion of your work
i need your style the passion in your love
i need your grace the passion of the words
i need you from your lips now onto mine,
for dignity and for disgrace taking me to a Motherland

of literary freedom ringing like lit liberty lanterns
swinging in a bitter wind of a midnight's gale forced upon me,
hard rain wetting lips and kissing the passion
of my words from me back to you,

James Baldwin.
