2012 Akua Lezli Hope

Akua Lezli Hope
Corning, NY, USA

she sits atop the rubbish heap of history
dispenses new nostrils that filter polluted air
wraps hair that helmets head from acid rain
enjoins others to help construct evolving parts
upcycle trash into habitation, clothing, art
makes loam from devastation,raising homes
growing gardens and wiser, braver brains
inspired by Priestess, composed and performed Billy Harper on Live In Europe, 1979
30"x 28"
Wool, acrylic, copper, brass, cotton fabric
