AFRO Speculative Poetry by Stafford Battle

 

Universal Theory

 

A grain of sand

is a universe

with infinite

planets and stars

with infinite variations

of energies

infinite varieties

of man.

 


 

 

The Oyster

 

Cares little

for buried

treasures

 

Smiling

as the

earth

rolls 

thru

 

space.

 


 

Sea Birds

 

Outcasts

to the real world

yet

occasionally

swooping down

as grave robbers

risking the 

wrath of

Tut.

 


 

The Art of Fusion

 

Grains of rice

sprinkle like a

Spring rain,

 

initiating an

unlimited source 

of love,

 

fueled 

by a steady flow of

sweat

and tears.

 


 

Gravity

 

Children orbit

their parents

like tiny moons,

pulling and tugging,

straining emotions,

running away,

just to

come tumbling back.
