Things I can’t explain

I can’t explain why my foot does that tap-tap thing,  

When ‘Fu-Gee-La’ starts to spin,

and,

I can’t explain why my head does that nod and turn,

While the beat heightens, twists, gets louder and drops,

and,

I can’t explain why I like more than your generic versions of hip-hop,

Maybe it’s because I’m more than your black robot.

and,

I can’t explain the throbbing pain in my chest, this anxiety,

When the police slow down, stop and ask for my “compliancy

and,

I can’t explain this profound irritation,

When you build water stations in lands you once irrigated,

and,

I can’t explain why I felt like writing this,

Just that I think we all finally needed this.
