after Lucille Clifton’s “Crazy Horse Names His Daughter”
for Assata Goff
call down the name freedom call
up the spirit of no matter what now call
your shared name liberation veins steel will
fierce focus shielding sacred smile laugh
your own name radiant as cuba
laugh your yawning name into language laugh
in the face of any power that does not know you laugh
to save life from leaning and falling over laugh
planting yes between sidewalk cracks up mural walls
and we will sing your grace walk like we know laugh
earned and eternal when we speak
Assata is here
