The Poetry of Synnika Alek-Chizoba Lofton

On a Palestinian Girl Escaping Tomorrow

She balances tomorrow’s humanity.

Dreams

outlive

brutal

thieves.

Dreams

form

crooked

smiles.

Dreams.

Tomorrow’s humanity she balances.

Lyric for Gaza

—Jazzy Freedom bangs on the drums!

Gaza

be

free

baby!

Gaza

stand

up

baby!

Gaza.

The drums—Jazzy Freedom bangs on!


--- America’s Great Hustle

—America hurls them dollars and buildings

crumble

in

another

land

crumble

securing

Her

interests

crumble

buildings—and America hurls them dollars 3/30/2024
