    Oh you junction,
    you silent partner
    between finance
    and renaissance,
    you collection
    of nerves around
    the heart of Detroit
    whose name we
    lost in history,
    you Robert that grew
    into Coleman’s
    jawbone, Conyer’s
    stamina, gentle stone
    goliath down
    on Jefferson, you
    long road from Mississippi,
    new law, of physics broken,
    you black history, you
    noun-gone-verb-
    millendering:
    the act of quiet
    empowerment of brown
    people in a white gravity,
    Oh you revolution,
    you.
