Kiss My Black Arts
Inspired by Visual artist Rtystk #kissmyblackarts
Filled with soul Colorful and vibrant Alive Divine creative flow Black art is that rock and roll, hip hop Jazz and R&B soul Black art is Chuck berry, Little Richard and those that go unnamed Black art is that cookout music That holy ghost music Gospel sung in churches without any Black faces Black art is that spiritual that cracked your heart open and had you praying to your maker Black Art is up in your face That jungle fever, Niggas with Attitude Don’t believe the hype and Do it in the butt Black Art is that caged bird that sings and the coldest Winter Ever That strange Fruit and Native Son Black Art made you Lindy hop and wonder what’s going on? Made you twist and shout Black Art refuses to be “othered” and only “urban” Hip hop your ass around the world To see cyphers in native tongues Pop locking, Harlem shaking back to their humanity Black Arts is that Zora Neale Hurston Phillis Wheatley Audre Lorde and those that go unnammed Black art is Passionate , fiery and commands authority Black Arts draws you in and is sexy It is that Grace Jones, that Josephine Baker and Zane chronicles Black art made you turn off the lights and get a sexual healing Black art is the language of shizzles, rhythmic flows, finger snaps and skatting Black art is history and present Black art will tell the truth when everyone is lying Black art is the voice of the people past and present Really the closest thing to being Black without being Black Black art will tell the truth when everyone is lying
