POSTBELLUM

Jibade-Khalil Huffman

Devil 
postbellum

one geography
of simulated sex 

updated from 
the middle age

middle passage. 

The incomparable 
Donald Goines 
Donnie Simpson 

darling  

currency  

some 

charbroiled midnight 
when you are
done up for nothing 

drawn down
the stairs from tending
to the surface

and frequency of 
commercial interruption

pauses for breath

oily rags
piled up like gymnastics.

Pattern framed

dump truck 
Bryant Gumbel.

Tall-tale 

baleful 

telegram 

favorite uncle 

stunned into

sunning oneself

on the hour

disguised in

a braided mullet 
and stove pipe

hi top fade

like
a commercial
for McDonalds
during Black History Month

the only people

that care about Kwanzaa

are McDonalds.

The world has managed to change

or become the sole proprietor of 
one kind of gumption

one brand of drums several dozen
patents for fondling everyone

he lays

his eyes on.
