Here's a piece i modeled off of some young Amiri Baraka stuff (Back when he was Leroi Jones):

Golden Circles

Quiet night & I’m biking home
up a long, wet hill.
Cars pass me by in the sweet leaf fog
and another biker.
it’s dark & we ride, synchronized
without realizing it.
The street lights spread golden
circles hazy across the night, through
the sound of breath like heavy mist
tired shoulders, shifting gears, golden
rules.

Love your fellow as you love
your self says the Bible/Koran/Gospels
The Vargas & The Analects.
you/we can/can’t.
Love your fellow.
Love you’re self.
