Possibly my single favorite piece of writing by Ti’Jean (March 12, 1922, Lowell, MA — October 21, 1969, St. Petersburg, FL): October in the Railroad Earth — given as poem by Youtube, in fact a prose piece, though its absolute beauty is exactly its genre-defying swing — writing at its most superb, writing to be listened to. Enjoy!
