Homework Help: poetry

Posted by redgy on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 3:53pm.

I'm trying to understand the meaning of Tom Dent's poem "secret messages" (for Danny Barker). What is he trying to say? I'm thinking in the first stanza, the rain is washing away the past and "bad" history of blk mammies chained to praline shops, but past that, I'm just not getting it. Any help would be appreciated. thanks
