A Good Assissination Should Be Quiet (1977) David N. Baker (1931 – 2012)
– Joshua Thompson, piano

Text by Mari Evans
he had
A dream
exploded
down
his
throat.

whereon
a million hard white eyes
swung impiously heavenward
to mourn
the gross indelicate demise.

such public death
transgresses
all known rules

A good assassination
should be quiet

and occupy the heart
four hundred
years

Prayer from Nightsongs (1996) Leslie Adams (b. 1933)
– Joshua Thompson, piano

Text by Langston Hughes

I ask you this:
Which way to go?
I ask you this:
Which sin to bear?
Which crown to put
Upon my hair?
I do not know,
Lord God,
I do not know.
