El Norte

Will  I find you in the north?

in the cold

Will I find you with dreads and

sandals

and with words on paper

Will I find

coffee in patchwork cafes

where Billie and Lightning play

Will your skin be dark and black and

African

and your thoughts

revolutionary

or even

armchair revolutionary

or even

a little off center

like mine

Will you be there?

Will I find you.
