Searching for Hemphill

Essex Hemphill (1957 - 1995)
Looking into his eyes I see a sense of peace and understanding that draws me in.

I regret that I didn't get to see or meet him or even been exposed to his works earlier.

AIDS have taken so many lives of talented Black gay men in the 80s and 90s.

My Offering

As I wake I search for a grasp of cosmic truth
that once was emitted from your energy
lingering across the land, waiting to be fused
with like-minded people

I welcome your spirit, if you were to visit
and together we will soul dance
