NOLA Lives

before
the French Quarter
was destroyed

a face
a skull

seen before
on the wall

dragon
scales
under my
human skin

two different
times
the same
place

busted levees
broken homes

what does the
remote
say

I have tattoos
older
than I

two beats
they said

if that’s
what it takes
to cause
Anarchy

light a fire
and break out
the
bongos

we will
never
be washed
away
