    Nigger Street 1937

    McIntosh Street the sign reads
    like the apple     red but not
    red delicious red     but red
    like redeye gravy on grits
    at Gus's or red like stoplights
    but they're also green and yellow
    like apples in Allen's Market
    on the corner     and red like
    those powders and syrups kept
    behind the counter at Doc's
    pharmacy     and red like
    stoked coals or embers     red
    in Sol's forge     red     and red like
    the stripe on Richard's barberpole
    and the stitching around buttonholes
    of overalls of those coming
    to town on Saturdays and red
    like the three ball     solid red
    in the side pocket at the Blue Moon
    and red like the eyes of those
    late-staying patrons     early
    in country churches on Sunday
    mornings     and in church the red
    of the edge of white pages
    in a black bound bible
    coming together     closing     red
    as the congregation     rises.
