Poetry stands as one of, if not the oldest, forms of all literary art. In Africa, where oral culture is the water and people are the fish, the fish swim these waters in so many ways and in thousands of styles as attested by the rich diversity of African language and dialectic heritage. Bongo Rhythms is, especially as it relates to this work, a very multifaceted phrase. Bongo is a Bantu word used here for its bi-referral meaning: 1. Brain, mind, or intellect 2. A class of drum types evolved from the talking drum Rhythms refer to the diversity of accentuation, ebb, flow, styles, etc., of thought frequencies in the context of the poems in this anthology. The Graffiti Fonts are the symbolic plays and displays of plain to sometimes deliberated hyperbole within the poems expected to yield transcended realization and feeling through revisualization, recontextualization, and rereading of the sense in each poem, line, etc.
