DONT FORGET THAT YOU REMEMBER
Five foot seven escaped zoo animal in a Whole Foods parking lot
Explaining to the IRS that I shouldn't be explaining to the IRS that being
Is a job.
Haven't you ever held out your hand?
Did you ever feel ashamed?
Meet my eyes in this lifetime.
Merging the mirrors of self
Fetish for French cafés
Cursive writing in public schools
Shopping at local, Black owned bookstores
That kid just called me a
Mistakes are one of my best mentors
I ate my worry
& felt nourished
I feel free & I see your freedom
I do not search for it
I am love.
A cactus held my phone as I danced in the desert
I hold myself.
Sure, I still have bruises
AND I AM HEALING.
I see you and I say
I know that flower.
