Kim Arrington: Griot/Alchemist

i remember
the growl
that strides
longside your laughter
up under your confidence
drumroll to your
explosive revelations
underground bassline
for your ever-ready hook
ancient signal alarm clock
to those who would remember
and i remember

it's a hard call
to write a poem
for a poet
but at the same time
its the only thing
to do
and to listen
for the basement
for the foundation
for the referent
for the growl
