Drum Slut Rising…

rising...rising...ever rising...

rising…rising…ever rising…

Drum Slut rising

stretching awake after a long winter’s sleep…

The drumbeat

stirring

within

Her

Loins…

Rising…

Rising…

Drum Slut rising…

Arms stretched to the sky

in homage to the Sun‘s

greening of the land…

Flowers…

Birdsong…

prelude to

summer’s heat

and

the

throbbing

pulsating

beat

of

the

drums

calling to

Drum Slut…

Slumber’s end…

Awaken…

Arise…

Drumming in Marcus Garvey Park…

And yesterday…Saturday

after the gift of Friday with K. in Central Park

came the ecstasy of drumming in

Marcus Garvey Park

A Holy Circle of

modern-day santeros, babalawos, curanderas

women, men and children

who are called by

the Spirit of the Drum

Grandfather blessing my drum…

Gathering weekly to pay homage

to the Motherland: Africa

Lending body, mind and soul

as vehicles upon which the Orishas may ride…

Giving oneself up as intermediary

between the two worlds

vessels to be filled with the

Voice of Drum Spirit…

Holy Rhythms of Healing and Love

rippling out from the village of Harlem

in never ending circles…

through the city…

the nation…

the world…
