Ur Ka 'Ba av Amiri Baraka (1934-2014)

Ka 'Ba


Our world is full of sound
Our world is more lovely than anyone's
tho we suffer, and kill each other
and sometimes fail to walk the air


We have been captured,
brothers. And we labor
to make our getaway, into
the ancient image, into a new

correspondence with ourselves
and our black family. We need magic
now we need the spells, to raise up
return, destroy, and create. What will be

the sacred words?

Amiri Baraka
finns i Black Magic (1968 (då han fortfarande hette LeRoi Jones))
