Regarding the Conversation Between Black Body and Sound


By Cortney Lamar Charleston

Bone talks beat because the name they
took from me is the mating pattern of
fingertip and drum; because even a shackle can
                          sing in chime, or the black body
                          can become a tambourine, heart
                          beating against the beaten hide...
