playing in the atlantic - Van G. Garrett/Fui Koshi

i renamed the ocean aya:
her indomitable spirit moved me
as she resounded in my ears
like chants bouncing on the coast
where those with and without my okra name
progressed in my likeness and greeted me
dashing       gifts       smiles       handshakes
as if we have walked africa’s paths together before
