sho be do bopping (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

sho be do bopping

(meditations on Miles’ “Doo-bop”) 

old dark lips in red jump suits
is weavin orange colored tones
in rhythm words strut’n
in stumblin voodoo rhymes
for hypnotic brown hips
drum pumpin in
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
makin throbbin sounds of ghetto rapin
they lickin mo’ sugar sweet
to pink colored night people
with shiny new gold teeth
sleepwalkin bones
and sho be do dancin feet
DOOOM DOOM DOOM
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
DOOOM DOOM DOOM
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
DO’DUMP DO’DUMP
