Not A Review: The Crossover - Kwame Alexander


There Are Books

that –
thump you,
choke you,
crack you up. 
Books that
you want to
give
to that kid
in your building,
Hey, you like basketball, don’t you?

One Day

he’ll come a-knocking,
And you’ll open,
his face like the last page –
Gratitude in his smile
and,
something more in his eyes.
Maybe,
he’ll score that basket.

The Tempo

will leave you,
puzzled,
shocked,
betrayed.
Don’t worry, love.
You can’t
help
but feel
the RhyThM
in the

WORDS –

What alchemy
can
Paint people,
Compose music,
Change lives?






2. (literary)
A mysterious
power or
magic
that can
change things.
Y’know what’s
short and sweet?
This, GOD, THIS.
