"THE PORT"

Port of hell
human cattle warehoused
prognosticating whips
blistering feet
in sweltering heat.
Preparations
for massive incarcerations
generational horror begins
shackle's discomfort await
buffet for sharks
agony navigate currents
pre-holocaust stench
lined up single file
perdition's' fortress
about to walk planks
across the Atlantic
divided kinship
shattered hearts
can't mend
regurgitate from anxiety
forced invitation
to colonialism
awaiting numbers
to be called
ready to sail
down the belly
one by one
no spaces
bodies stored
top each other
overloaded
Oh please mother
save me
please save me.
oh mother
where they take me?
ancient echoes
haunt the port
millions times repeated
over and over again
spirits emerged
from infamy
As reminder
never forget.
