Poem: Colorism

Colonialism started colorism The judgement of shades of skin The lightest pigmentation wins The game of inequality. It was created to subdivide Within the already divided classes Steps of hierarchy based on hues from darkest to lightest Stay in your designated space Don’t step outside of your place Dark skinned peasants worked the fields under blazing…

Poem: When I was engaged to be married the first time

I didn’t know there’d be 2 more proposals and no marriages. Every decade or so I meet a partner that I’m convinced Is the One Until he’s gone And then we’re both left crying After all the useless trying. It seems so incredibly rare To work the details out Solve the puzzle Reverse the doomed…
